The Coorong and Lakes Alexandrina and Albert wetland is one of Australia's most important wetland areas. Australia designated the site, covering approximately 140,500 ha in South Australia, as a Wetland of International Importance under the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands in 1985. Parts of the Coorong also form the Coorong National Park and Game Reserve. Due to it's diversity of ecological features, the site provides a wide range of habitats. Waders and waterfowl are the predominant species, including the Curlew Sandpiper, Banded Stilt, Red-capped Plover, Masked Lapwing, Redkneed Dotterel, Black Swan, Cape Barren Goose, Musk Duck, Straw-necked Ibis, Royal Spoonbill, Rufus Night Heron and Australian Pelican. The site has a unique mosaic of 23 wetland types and provides habitat for nationally threatened species such as the Orange Bellied Parrot, Southern Mount Lofty Ranges Emu Wren and the Murray Cod. It also contains the threatened Gahnia sedgeland ecosystem and part of the endangered Swamps of the Fleurieu Peninsula.

Join us on this amazing 2 day / 1 night all-inclusive kayak tour of the Ramsar listed Coorong and Murray Mouth region accompanied by a local guide and Adventurous Women host.

We will be meeting at the Mundoo boat ramp, where parking is available for your vehicle, to organise the kayaks and start our adventure heading to Barker's Knoll for lunch and on to our campsite.

After we enjoy some afternoon tea and settle in, we will be led on a bush tucker walk through the nearby dunes to learn about and collect some ingredients for dinner before returning to the camp for some free time to explore and watch the sunset.

After dinner enjoy some star gazing, spot lighting or if you're keen, a spot of beach fishing (yes you're welcome to bring your gear along) and a supper before we turn in.

The following morning we will enjoy a relaxed start before making our way to the Murray River mouth hearing about the area’s uniqueness and current state as we travel, arriving in time for a late lunch and a walk to the Murray mount lookout where the tour wraps up and we walk a short distance back to get our vehicles.

Please note that there will not be shower facilities and some of your toilet stops will be using a spade in the bush.

 

Single Kayaks are available for an additional $22 inc GST
Please advise if you would like one when booking or after by email to office@adventurouswomen.com.au

We had a wonderful weekend celebrating Christmas in July in the Bunya Mountains. We laughed endlessly, ate a lot, drank a little, sang a bit, and also managed to squeeze in some beautiful hikes. Kat and Caron were superb hosts who went above and beyond to ensure we all had a great time.
