Birdwatching may not be everyone's cuppa tea, however, with over 200 species of birds having been recorded in the park, including two rare species, Coorong National Park is not just a birdwatcher's paradise, but a great opportunity to get into nature and chill. You might even find yourself a new hobby in birdwatching, while getting some relaxing downtime at the same time. This is a FREE event on Saturday 16 March 2019 from 9am to 12pm at Coorong National Park, Mark Point Car Park, Mark Point, however, you need to REGISTER for your spot on the tour.

Meet at the first bird spotting stop at Mark Point where registrations are taking place, before driving in convoy 5kms along the Coorong Lagoon, to park at Pelican Point. After that it's an easy 800m walk over level terrain from Pelican Point to Tauwitchere Barrage, looking out for birds as you go. Please note, in the event of bad weather, the event may be cancelled.

Things to bring: A minimum of 1 litre of water and some snacks; long trousers and long-sleeved top recommended; sturdy footwear; hat and sunscreen; binoculars or telescope; and a field guide to help with bird identifications, plus a warm jumper and rainproof jacket just in case. Please note there are no toilet facilities available.

The distinctive landscape is a destination for migratory waders, and an internationally renowned breeding area for the Australian pelican. Summer, in particular, is a time for different water birds visiting the wetland. A refuge for ducks, swans, cormorants, terns, grebes and a number of species of local waders, John Gitsham, President of Birds SA will take you on a guided tour from Mark Point to the Tauwitchere Barrage.
