You'll need a boat to access this walk so if you don't have one find a friend with a yacht, speedboat or tinny. It's a bit too far to paddle your kayak, maybe 8 kms from the Mundoo Boat Ramp on Hindmarsh Island, and you need to reserve energy for the walk.

Coorong Cruises incorporate this walk in some of their cruise itineraries. A good option if you don't have access to a boat.

Although a moderately easy walk of only 3 kms (return), it's a great adventure for many reasons. It starts at the Coorong Lagoon and winds through the bush and sandhills, ending at a spectacular Southern Ocean beach.

There are information boards along the way identifying local fauna.

In more recent times the area was popular for its supply of cockles.

There's a few rusty pieces of cockle-catching evidence scattered about.

There's a 'boardwalk' leading through the dunes with arrows clearly guiding the way.
