      # The Coorong is a coastal lagoon separated from the Southern Ocean by
      approximately 100km long Younghusband Peninsula. A large part of the
      Coorong area is protected as a nature park. The area was densely
      inhabited by Aboriginal people before the arrival of European settlers.
      The still living in the area Aboriginal people run a camp where visitors

      can acquaint themselves first-hand with the Coorong environment (walking

      trails) and with history, culture and activities of Aboriginal
      inhabitants. Workshops in basket weaving are offered, and the camp has a

      small museum.

      Adelaide is centrally located in Australia between beaches of the St
      Vincent Gulf and the Mount Lofty Ranges (over 700m high). The city is
      surrounded by valleys with extensive vineyards and nature reserves.
      There are three universities (The University of Adelaide, The University

      of South Australia, and The Flinders University of South Australia; all
      of which have Faculties/Divisions of Health Sciences). The South
      Australian Museum has a large natural science collection and an
      excellent collection of aboriginal art. Adelaide is renown for its
      biennial festival of culture and arts. There are many fine hotels and
      good restaurants offering a world wide range of cuisines.

      Early December is the beginning of summer in South Australia. Usually
      very sunny (bring a hat and protective lotion if you plan to walk) and
      hot days (25-30°C; 80-95°F), but reasonably cool nights.
