We were up early to leave for Goolwa on the east coast of the peninsula where our 6hr adventure Coorong cruise departed .

The cruise was fantastic and we learnt alot about how they have put the barages in to return Lake Alexander and Lake Albert into freshwater lakes and how the mouth of the river Murray has changed position over the years creating the huge sand peninsula of sand dunes over 2 km wide in places called the younghusband peninsula and is the Coorong area. We also saw lots of birds including the royal Spoonbill, the little eagle, black winged stilt and many more including hundreds of pelican.

We also learnt alot about how the original locals lived, fed themselves and found fresh water.

After the cruise Katie and Andy left to fly back to Melbourne and we moved down to Voctor Harbour for a couple of nights
