There is some­thing for all ages and inter­ests in the Coorong. The seren­i­ty, the sheer diver­si­ty, and the prox­im­i­ty to Ade­laide make it an immense­ly pop­u­lar park. Vis­i­tors come for bird watch­ing, boat­ing, kayak­ing, fish­ing, camp­ing, walk­ing, four-wheel dri­ving and Euro­pean and cul­tur­al history.

The Coorong is also a wet­land of inter­na­tion­al impor­tance, sup­port­ing many sig­nif­i­cant and endan­gered flo­ra and fauna.

Both Encounter and Upper South East Marine Parks bor­der Coorong Nation­al Park.
