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.

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.

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.
