- The Murray Coorong Trail is a collaborative project between the Coorong, Murray Bridge and Mid-Murray Councils, with support from the Department for Environment and Water and the Murray River Lakes and Coorong Tourism Alliance.
- Once stage 2 is completed the trail will be a 450 km multi-purpose recreational trail linking Cadell in the Riverland to Salt Creek in the Coorong and tracking along the waters of the River Murray, Lakes and Coorong.
- Stage 2 will see construction of two more planned sections (Raukkan to Noonameena in the Coorong Council and Tailem Bend to Wellington).
- For Raukkan to Noonameena (32 kms), the Coorong District Council will work in partnership with Raukkan Community Council, National Parks South Australia, Natural Resources Management (Mallee & Coorong) and private landholders to construct a trail in as close proximity to the water as possible.
- For Tailem Bend to Wellington (15 kms) the Rural City of Murray Bridge will work with the Department for Environment and Water, the Wellington Progress Association and the Murrundi Reserve Working Group as well as a local Indigenous Group to construct the trail through Murrundi Reserve and on to Wellington.
- The State Government has contributed $168,500 to stage 2 of this project.
- This trail will meet the demand for recreational trails in the River Murray, Lakes and Coorong region and further enhance the opportunities for people to be active in our communities.
