Coongie Lakes National Park has reopened after being closed due to floodwaters. The floodplains north of Kudriemitchie have finally dried out.
Coongie Lakes National Park is one of the most spectacular of South Australia's natural attractions. The park is a pristine water world made up of channels, waterholes, lakes, internal deltas, shallow floodplains and interdune corridors and swamps.
This arid wetland plays host to a diversity of wildlife including native birds, fish, reptiles and frogs and transforms into a breeding ground for an enormous number of migratory birds from around the world.
Birdwatching, photography, bushwalking and canoeing are popular ways to enjoy the park's wilderness setting.
Co-management of the park involves a partnership between the Government of South Australia and traditional owners to share responsibility and decision making for the strategic management of the park. A co-management committee (in accordance with a co-management agreement between the Minister for Sustainability, Environment and Conservation and the traditional owners, Yandruwandha and Yawarrawarrka people) co-manage Coongie Lakes National Park. Per vehicle entry and camping fees apply.
