About the Murray River, Lakes and Coorong
In the Murray River, Lakes and Coorong the ocean, river and endless plains offer a variety of vistas around every bend in the road. Whether it’s soaking up the tranquillity of the beaches and dunes along the Coorong or family fun at the many special attractions throughout the region, when you travel the Murray River you can choose something different to do – and eat – every day.
The region officially begin close to Adelaide, stretching down through the towns along the river to the Murray mouth at Goolwa and to the state’s border with Victoria. Many small communities quietly produce the bulk of the state’s most loved and essential ingredients. From onions to potatoes, carrots, mushrooms, capsicums, lettuce, olives and tomatoes, these producers know how to get the best out of the fertile sandy soils. Your local food experience here may make you look at those ‘basics’ with fresh eyes.
Match it up with the bounty of the renowned Coorong, where you will find the famed Coorong mullet and fresh cockles. The Coorong fishermen have now been internationally recognised for their sustainable management of these scarce and prized resources. Whilst inland, wheat ripens in the sun, dairy herds graze and livestock grow sleek. You can connect with nature here – and experience fresh flavours others can only dream about.
