Belluna P/L trading as Spirit Australia Cruises

Spirit Australia Cruises operate two, four and six hour Spirit of the Coorong cruises departing from the historic port of Goolwa, 90 kilometres south of Adelaide. Cruise to the Murray Mouth on the two hour Murray Mouth cruise, or across the Murray Mouth and into the wetland wilderness of the Coorong National Park on a four hour Coorong Discovery or six hour Coorong Adventure cruise.

The long, narrow, Coorong wetland lagoon complex extends almost 150 kilometres from the Murray Mouth and is a special place of great beauty and tranquillity. High sand dunes separate the Coorong from the Southern Ocean and support a large range of wetland birds and vegetation.

Recognised for spectacular sand-dune scenery and internationally significant as a migratory wader and waterfowl refuge, the Coorong is spiritually significant to the local Ngarrindjeri Aboriginal people and has archaeological sites attesting to Aboriginal occupation and use of the area over many thousands of years.

Spirit of the Coorong cruise boats are purpose built to cruise into the protected waters of this shallow lagoon system. Enjoy the Captain's commentary on the Aboriginal and European history, ecology and birdlife of the area. Guided walk(s), a delicious lunch, and afternoon tea are included.
