Enjoy a scenic tour (1.5 hours) of this unique cattle and sheep station, run over a series of islands in the heart of the Coorong.
The unusual blend of salt and fresh water environments lend themselves to myriad birdlife and a diverse ecological wonderland with picturesque scenery and natural flora and fauna.
Your tour begins on Hindmarsh Island and progresses across the Mundoo Barrage to Mundoo Island where the historical story begins to unfold.
Much of this history, and more, will be included in Sally's new book on the history of Mundoo Island Station to be published in the coming months.
If you are interested in being contacted via email when Sally's second book is available, please contact us.

You never know what you might come across on a tour of Mundoo Island ...
Tourists have been delighted with sightings of sea lions, seals, snakes, Sea Eagles, foxes and deer to name a few oddities.
You may be lucky enough to see the wild horses that are broken-in when new stock horses are required for station use.
Birds galore ...
The Coorong is a wetland of international significance playing host to 12 species of international migratory birds and is the largest breeding habitat for the Australian Pelican. Approximately 85 species of waterbirds have been recorded in the region including Red-necked Avocets, White-necked Heron, Stilts, Godwits, Stints, Plovers, Dotterels, Ducks, Swan, Cape Barren Geese and Ibis. The Coorong provides invaluable habitat and feeding sites for birds that have travelled from China, Japan and Siberia.
Red-necked Stints are tiny birds that migrate annually from breeding grounds in the Arctic, approximately 10,000km for a one way journey. Red-necked stints, Sharp-tailed sandpipers and other migratory birds can be seen feeding on the tidal flats of the Coorong in the summer months.
