About the Walking Trail

A great wildlife walk, this trail takes you through the sand dunes from the Coorong Lagoon to the ocean beach. There are interpretive signs along the way.

As you walk along the trail you might see wildlife such as Emus, kangaroos, sand dragons, sea eagles, blue wrens and Swamp Harriers. Evidence of previous Ngarrindjeri occupation still exists with mounds of sheels and old camp fire sites.

The trail is clad with chained boards to help minimise erosion.

The trail is only accessible by boat. If using kayaks the trail could be accessed from the Murray Mouth Lookout, which is 4-5km to the west of Godfreys Landing.

Camping is permitted at Godfreys Landing. There are toilets and a sheltered seating area.

A good account of the trail experience can be found on Weekend Notes.

Spirit of the Coorong offers cruises that include Godfreys Landing and the walking trail. Cruises depart Goolwa.

Canoe the Coorong hires out kayaks and offers kayak tours which include Godfreys Landing and the walking trail. They are based in Mundoo Channel near the Murray Mouth Lookout.
