Want a personalised, behind-the-scenes look at the Coorong region?
Our Coorong Tours will take you to places that are not easily accessed by the average vistor.
We will take you behind the farm gate so that you can meet Coorong locals up close and personal.
Discover the hidden secrets of the Coorong!Meaning, we will take you to vist a local producer, for a behind the scenes look at that industry. And, because there is so much to see, we invite you to put together a package that suits you, and your group (minimum 15 people). Choose three options from below and we will organise the rest! Each farm gate visit will take around an hour, but allowing for travel between sites, comfort stops, food breaks and jawbreaking views of the Coorong, we expect that your tour will take a full day.
