Introduction to Council area:
Far enough away from bustling city life to keep its natural beauty and solitude, the Coorong District Council area is home to spectacular beaches, picturesque river-side and lake-side locations and isolated bushland, making it an unspoilt and uniquely different place to live or holiday.
Formed in May 1997 following the amalgamation of the District Councils of Peake, Coonalpyn and Meningie, the Coorong District Council is divided into three Wards - Lakes, Mallee and Parks.
With a total area of 8,836 km sq, the Coorong District Council is home to approximately 6000 people. The main towns are Coonalpyn, Meningie, Tailem Bend and Tintinara. More than 1,880 km of roads exist in the district, of which 1,563 km are unsealed.
A diverse range of primary production industries operate within the District, including cropping, livestock (sheep, cattle, pigs), dairying, commercial fishing, aquaculture, horticulture and mining. Much of the District is serviced by major trunk freight routes, including the Dukes, Mallee and Princes Highways and the Adelaide to Melbourne rail line.
