SUGGESTED DRIVES FOR THOSE WISHING TO EXPLORE:-A drive around the lake and surrounding areas is well worth it, when leaving the park take a right turn on Narrung Road and head towards Narrung which is 42 km away. A short detour at Long Point will take you to the picture perfect Coorong, with many spots suitable for a quiet picnic lunch and a spot of fishing for Coorong mullet & mulloway or just sitting back watching the abundance of bird and wildlife, for those slightly "adventurous" people with a 4WD keep driving onto towards Mark's Point, once a stopping point for pioneer drovers to allow cattle a drink at the huge troughs. From here head to Raukkan, the town with the church featured on the Australian $50 note. Head back to Narrung and take the free 24 hour car ferry across the Narrows where Lake Albert meets Lake Alexandria to the Point Malcolm lighthouse, which is the only inland lighthouse in the southern hemisphere. Continue along the road past the 1839 built homestead of Poltalloch Station and onto the Princes Hwy. If returning back to Meningie turn right and head past the antique shop / art gallery at Ashville. Just before you come to Meningie (12 kms out) there on your left hand side is a nice spot to stop and take a photo of the stunning Pink Lakes (that at right time of year is pink in colour).
