Capture the Coorong - Photo Competition

Capture the Coroong

Coorong Park of the Month Photography Competition | March 2019

The Coorong is a national treasure, recognised under the Ramsar Convention as a wetland of international significance, supporting migratory birds from across the world, threatened wildlife, rare plants and an important breeding area for the iconic Australian pelican.

The Coorong’s natural beauty, abundant wildlife and unspoilt coastline make it one of South Australia’s most visited tourist destinations. It also makes it an ideal location to capture images that you consider represent the Coorong and that promote the environmental and cultural heritage values of the area.

The Coorong National Park has been chosen as Park of the Month for March 2019. With so many activities to choose from in the Park, this is a great opportunity to connect with nature, explore the wonders of the Coorong and capture some of the most unique environment in the world.
