Mundoo Island Station is an operating cattle & sheep station and allows small groups of campers onto Mundoo & Ewe Islands.

No facilities are provided, therefore all campers must be totally self-contained.

Tents, camper trailers and caravans are welcome. Some camp sites require 4WD to access.

Boating access in the Coorong is available at some camp sites – launch sites are unmade and are shallow therefore only small boats can be launched on site.  

Larger boats can be launched at the Mundoo Channel boat ramp and motored around to your campsite for the duration of your stay.

Our camp sites only suit those who wish to set up camp and not drive anywhere for the duration, due to access restrictions crossing the barrages on and off Mundoo & Ewe Islands.

Please note that porta pottis are essential as you are not permitted to dig holes for toilet purposes.

A fee is applicable for any inspection requests and will only be accommodated if time permits.

No pets are permitted.  

The sites are in paddocks and therefore during summer the grass is dry and may be prickly under foot.

It is also important to remember that snakes inhabit our islands and you must keep a watchful eye out for them.

We suggest that you brush up on your first aid before camping and bring a well stocked first aid kit and snake-bite kit with you.

We have small wind shelters at 4 of our camp sites: Grannie’s Hill, Old Stock Fence, Annie’s and All Alone.

Activities that can be enjoyed whilst camping on Mundoo Island Station include: fishing, kayaking, boating, swimming in the Coorong, bird watching, coastal walks, cycling, watching the sun set and relaxing!

A tour of Mundoo Island Station can be arranged if time permits (costs apply - see our tour information tab on our website).

Kayaks are available for hire and must be booked in advance.

If you have your own kayaks or boat, you can access the beautiful Coorong sand dunes and walk to the Southern Ocean for a swim in the surf or do some cockling (in season).

Fishing directly into Boundary Creek or Mundoo Channel can yield nice catches of mulloway, salmon trout and Coorong mullet. Floundering is fun in Boundary Creek too but you will need the correct floundering equipment.
