Things To Do

The park is a only a short walk from the heart of historic Meningie Town. One of the most popular local Meningie attractions is the Meningie Museum that was once the town's cheese factory, situated right outside parks entrance, featuring an assortment of historical treasures that paint a lively picture of life in Australia’s times gone by!

Suggested Drives For Those Wishing To Explore The Coorong Country

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 go past 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 due to an algea).

Another suggested drive is going to Coonalpyn a short 25 minutes away and visiting the Coonalpyn Silo's that were painted by artist Guido van Helten in 2017 and part of the silo art trail, the Coorong District Council has also made many other art projects in Coonalpyn. Make sure you stop off for a bite to eat at the Coonalpyn Hotel! If you like 4wding come back via the dirt roads, maybe even do the historic Tolmer gold escort route which meanders between Wellington and Salt Creek in fantastic native shrub, this route was proposed by Thomas Tolmer back in 1852.

If you have your own kayaks or SUP's bring them along as the lake when its calm is a great place to paddle around. The lake is also suited for wake boarding, skiing and other watersports. Legend has it Meningie's own Gary "Nutsy" Forrester was the worlds first person to wakeboard at Curdimurka, he learnt his skills at a young age on Lake Albert.
