Had a great time with Brenton - who knows his birds and his bushtucker. Enjoyed a leisurely paddle - approx 5km, a walk across the dunes, learning some of the history and culture of the area, and viewed the Murray Mouth. Salad Roll, fruit and snacks in good supply. A very pleasant day, and a lovely way to view a... More

Brenton is such a thoughtful & helpful guide to the wonders of the Coorong. He tailored our sunset trip to suite a couple of "older" girls. It was 40 degrees that afternoon but that did not detract from the event. We just spent a little longer in the shade over a delicious picnic of local produce.

My husband and I done the Canoe The Coorong day trip last weekend and had an amazing time. We got to explore this unique part of SA with an amazing guide and the added joy of being on the water. Brenton is amazing... so much knowledge about and passion for the area, plus nothing was too much trouble. I highly... More

We went on the 3 Hour Sunset tour with my family and my 70 year old parents. It was a brilliant experience - easily the best money I've spent on an experience in a long time. Brenton is passionate about the coorong, full of information and a fun host. The picnic provided with the tour had excellent local wines, fruits... More

We did the 6 hour day tour with Brenton and we was such an amazing host and tour guide. He was well organised, friendly and had amazing knowledge and passion for the Coorong. The paddle was not difficult (although we had awesome conditions!) and was instantly calming as soon as we pushed off from our start point. The bush-tucker walk... More

Interesting Bush Tucker information and tastings.Lunch was the best and freshest fish burger I've ever tasted. It rained as we crossed the mouth of the Murray and it was exhilarating.

An early wake up and drive to Goolwa was absolutely worth the effort. We were met in a quiet spot by our leader Brenton and 8 other explorers, a little apprehensive regarding what we may have signed up for. A quick paddling lesson and we were 'safety-ed up' and ready to go. Onto the water and a gentle paddle with... More

Brenton Carle was our canoe guide and local expert. He took us as part of a mixed age and ability group in double canoes. His knowledge was amazing. It was great to learn about bush tucker, wildlife, ecology, history and hear about the Murray River. We saw Australian Pelicans, Cape Barren Geese, black faced cormorants, Royal Spoonbills and lovely avocets.... More

Brenton organised a great trip for us, and put on some great weather as well with some favourable winds giving us a push / sail to the end ! Pity about some of the mozzies through who tried to spoil the day, but they didn't succeed. Was great to learn about the Coorong, and to try some bush tucker. Would... More
