On our way from Kangaroo Island to Robe we drove through the Coorong NP. The stop in Meninigie was the best part of our cardrive. The Great Ocean Road, for example, offers a much better scenic view during driving. Instead of the Coorong NP use the highway that takes you faster to your next stop.

My partner and I stayed the night at Parnka Point (Pelican). The surrounds were beautiful and it was very peaceful. We saw some pelicans and large lizards. The only downside was the smell during the day but we were pre-warned. I would definitely recommend this as a camping spot or just for a visit!

We had planned to head onward to Mount Gamble or Warrnambool after getting off the ferry from KI but we just didn’t have it in us to make that long trek and possibly miss something along the way. Our back-up plan turned into the best plan as we wild-camped in Coorong National Park near Salt Creek for a night and... More

It was a long drive for us on this day but loved every minute. Lots of stop off points for pictures and plenty of wildlife. I definitely recommend a visit

Watching Storm Boy as a kid all I really remember is the vast water flats and Pelicans ... The movie reflects these to aspects well, however experiencing first hand is even better! The 24 hr ferries add to my fond memories! A good driving destination

We never even knew this wonderful place existed back in the UK. It was only until family friends took us for a day trip via boat to the Coorong. It's a joy to view much sand and sea, without the masses of people and tourism. Natural habitat presents sand and sea at it's best. Sand dunes high and low, which... More

Wow, what a place. We stayed at 28 mile crossing for 2 nights, nesteled in the dunes and sheltered from the winds. It was lovely, it only had 6 large campsites and only 3 where in use. Alot of the Coorong is accessible by 4wd only, we had great fun exploring and fishing. Seen a few emus and kangeroos, only... More

This whole region is quite spectacular. Just loved walking along the sandy stretches, visiting the bird hides and camping at Pelican campground. Booked on line when we arrived. Only $14. Several others there. No facilities at this ground but a walk along the beach takes you to the composting toilet. The moon over the water at night and the abundant... More

There are several secluded campsites in the area, accessible by most cars but 4wd recommended. We went via tea tree crossing, which is only accessible in late summer when the lake recedes. Absolutely gorgeous area with plenty of flora and fauna to explore, some easy 4wd tracks and sand dunes for the more experienced 4WDers. The dirt roads are quite... More

This place is amazing! Remote, verdant, full of wildlife and such a gem. Regrettably, future generations may not be able to appreciate it given the increases in ocean levels. So get out there now and see a vital, wildlife-chocked wilderness in its native state. Some great basic camping spots and miles of undisturbed beach. One of Australia's unsung jewels.
