Mundoo Island Station is an operating cattle & sheep station only 20 minutes from Goolwa, in the heart of the Coorong (via Hindmarsh Island). The privacy, seclusion, beautiful vistas & myriad birdlife make our privately owned island a treat!
Enjoy the beauty of our private Coorong beaches or relax and watch nature unfold before your eyes. Historic station & bird watching tours (extra cost) are available to see the beauty of our island. You are nestled in nature ... not near shops or neighbours.

The space
Access to our island is private, therefore we meet you at a locked gate on Hindmarsh Island and escort you over the Mundoo Barrage to "The Retreat" @ Mundoo Island Station. The meeting time will be arranged between us to suit both parties. Please note that you cannot access our property on your own.

Your adventure has begun ..... if only for a weekend, week or perhaps you are looking for a place of beauty and peace to write a book, write poetry, or maybe to enjoy your passion of photography, sketching or art.

"The Retreat" is off-grid. The power is gained from solar energy and stored in batteries, therefore there is a limited supply of power before you may need to start a generator. A 240v inverter is used. Wise use of power is encouraged to rely wholly on the solar power.
You can operate a laptop computer and charge mobile phones, cameras, tablets and electronic readers.
Please do not bring items that draw a lot of power.

During your stay
We are busy working on the station but can be contacted should the need arise. Due to insurance issues, sadly, you are not permitted to get involved in station activities but you may see some going on.

You can be as active or passive as you wish.
Read a book from our extensive library, you are welcome to bring kayaks (or you can hire from us), bring your bicycles to cycle to Boundary Creek, launch your own boat (size limitations apply) from an unmade boat ramp adjacent "The Retreat" for a cruise in the Coorong, bring your fishing gear to catch Coorong mullet, mulloway, salmon trout or go floundering, walk through the paddocks or along our Coorong beach, pack a picnic lunch hamper and enjoy the beautiful birdlife and fresh air ... or simply relax and enjoy watching the sun set into the Coorong.

Avid birdwatchers should bring their binoculars, scopes and bird ID books as you are sure to tick off a few birds on your list!
