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.
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.
