Welcome to the Waterfront Motel

Waterfront Motel Entrance

There were originally five tribes of the Ngarrindjeri people who occupied the Coorong and Meningie district.

The name “Meningie” is widely accepted to be taken from the Aboriginal word meaning “mud”.

First European exploration was by Captain Charles Sturt in approx 1830 which was followed by overlanders who brought sheep and cattle.

By 1840s the area was established with large properties and the ferry at Wellington was operating. Meningie was a staging post for the stagecoach traveller en-route to Melbourne and the goldfields of Ballarat.

Today it is a great place to relax and unwind, enjoy pleasant walks along the shores of Lake Albert, marvel at the stunning sunsets over the lake and enjoy the prolific birdlife.

Situated on the shores of the largest freshwater lake system in Australia, Meningie is an ideal stopover on the Adelaide - Melbourne route or on the way to or from Kangaroo Island. It is a wonderful base from which to explore the unique Coorong National Park.
