The Coorong - Murray Mouth
Mulloway is the most abundant type of fish that can be found in the
mouth of the river. Rays, salmon, mullets, flounder and bream also find
their way to the mouth of the river from time to time and in the entire
length of the Coorong. The Coorong is well sheltered, thus, finding a
good camping ground is not difficult. Mullets found at the Coorong is
tastier and plummer than that of mullets from the coastline.
Access to the mouth is gained either by boat or four-wheel drive
along the beach from the popular holiday town of Goolwa. Beach buggies
can be hired at Goolwa at quite reasonable cost, and some are hired for
as long as a week, with the angler pitching his tent at the mouth or in
the protective sandhills 100 m back.
At the southernmost end of the Coorong immediate access is gained at
Chinaman Well and Salt Creek, and from here all the way up to Hindmarsh
Island, which is directly opposite the Murray mouth, great numbers of
mullet are taken by professional netters.
