This campsite is located in Coorong National Park
A narrow strip of coastal dunes, the Younghusband Peninsula extends for more than 100 km. It encloses an equally slender series of saline lagoons, a wetland habitat visited by more than 230 bird species. The homelands of the Ngarrindjeri people, this is a landscape of subtle natural wonders, and accordingly is an area of international ecological and historical significance. The beaches are accessible by 4WD, and are much-loved fishing and camping haunts. There are plenty of peaceful camping and walking destinations dotted along the park’s mainland fringes. Exploring the lagoons by small boat or canoe is the ideal way to enjoy this region and the extraordinary sandscapes of the peninsula.
