Accommodation

Coorong National Park

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.
