If you’re looking to treat yourself, the Innamincka Hotel also offers sunset Cooper Creek cruises aboard the ‘Kingfisher’ where guest can relax drinks and canapés while your guide explains some of the more fascinating aspects of the Cooper Creek and the Innamincka Regional Reserve.
The 1½hr sunset cruise will leave you captivated as you meander along the creek and take in the stunning birdlife, spot the occasional inquisitive animal on the banks, and marvel at the variety of flora along this surprisingly serene waterway.
As the last light fades, and the boat pulls into the bank, campfires pop up along the riverbanks like fireflies and the peace is broken by crackling fires, noisy insects and overly enthusiastic Yellowbelly leaping from the water.
Truly an experience to be cherished.
For the more fit and adventurous, the hotel also hires kayaks so you can take in the Cooper at your own leisure.
