Top 10 Storm Boy Experiences in the Coorong for Adults

Lakes & Coorong

Discover the iconic landscapes and environment captured in the new Storm Boy film by cruising through places you can only access by boat. There’s a range of long and short cruising tours inspired by the film, and being run by the innovative and adventurous teams from Spirit of the Coorong and Cruise the Coorong. Enjoy the spectacular scenery as you visit 90 Mile Beach, go on guided walks into the Coorong National Park’s lagoons and sandhills, dig for Pipis on the beach, try native bushtucker and more. PLUS - while you’re taking it all in, the crew will give insights on the rich history, ecology and wildlife of the area (and you might even be able to convince them to spill a few beans on the making of Storm Boy – we hear they helped transport the crew to ‘secret’ locations throughout filming!). OR - alternatively, if you prefer to paddle yourself, get active and explore the Coorong by kayak with the award-winning team from Canoe the Coorong.
