Coorong National Park Camp Sites

Godfreys Landing

Information ~ toilet ~ camp sites ~ walking

Accessible by boat from Goolwa and Hindmarsh Island.

A fascinating walk through the sand dunes of the Younghusband Peninsula near the Murray Mouth takes visitors from the Coorong lagoon to the ocean beach.

Long Point

Boat launch ~ toilet ~ camp sites ~ information

A newly constructed jetty provides visitors with easy access to their craft or to join tours to and from Goolwa.

A great spot to try some line fishing as the sun sets over the Coorong lagoon on a calm night.

Parnka Point

Camp sites ~ information ~ toilet ~ boat launch ~ viewing deck

Parnka Point or "Hells Gate" is the narrowest point between the northern and southern Coorong lagoon. This point of land stretches so close to the dunes of the Younghusband Peninsula, you can almost reach out and touch them.

Parnka Point is noted for excellent views up and down the lagoon, and wading birds are also com-monly found fossicking in the shallow, sheltered bays.

Salt Creek

Toilet ~ information ~ walking trail ~ camp sites

The longest walking trail in the Coorong (27 km) starts at Salt Creek and extends south to the 42 Mile Crossing. This trail links four other interesting but shorter walks focusing on wildlife, scenery, early settlement of Chinese people and the sand dune systems.

Good quality bush camp sites are available along the nearby Loop Road.

42-Mile Crossing

Information ~ camp sites ~ walking trail ~ picnic shelter ~ toilet ~ surf fishing

So named because of its distance from Kingston, this is the closest point for conventional vehicles to the beach. A pleasant 20 minute walk along the easily accessible trail from the camp ground and through the sand dunes brings you to the crashing waves of the Southern Ocean.
