Coorong Wilderness Lodge Tours

The Coorong Wilderness Lodge operated by the local Ngarrindjeri people is situated approximately 180 kilometres south east of Adelaide and 25 kilometres south of the town of Meningie, on a peninsula called Hacks Point, midway along the beautiful Coorong. Separated from the breakers of the Southern Ocean by a peninsula of sand dunes, the Coorong is a 100 kilometre salt water lagoon. The Coorong’s lakes and waterways team with birdlife – white faced herons, pelicans, egrets, swans, gull and migratory birds. The Lodge’s Ngarrindjeri owners will guide you towards an understanding of the ways of the Coorong, they will inform, entertain and challenge you. The knowledge passed down by generations of Elders means most when you stand in the place it originated.
