Coorong Candles Co.

A small team of artisans and creators, passionate about producing quality, natural products for home and body. From natural soy candles to fragranced reed diffusers, goat milk soap and bath bombs, our products are finely handcrafted in our Southern Fleurieu Peninsula Studio, near the entrance to the Coorong.

The brand’s natural, handcrafted products are inspired by nature, named after the Coorong - a magnificent, timeless, and beautiful stretch of coastal wetlands right here in South Australia.

They carefully blend their fragrances to convey a fragrant image of our branding. From selecting the finest ingredients, to production and final packaging - it is all part of the handmade process.

Extensive research and constant testing of all products is important to the brand so that it can ensure the finest quality products.


For over 6000 years the Coorong and lower lakes of Australia’s longest river, the mighty Murray, was one of the most densely populated areas in the Country and home to the Ngarrindjeri, the traditional custodians of the land.

Coorong is derived from the Aboriginal word, “karangk”, meaning narrow neck. A spectacular long, shallow saline lagoon stretching for 150 km, it was established as a National Park in 1966, and is in South Australia about 150 kms southeast of Adelaide.

A vast unspoiled area, the Coorong is of great importance in the Dreaming, and is renowned for its archaeological sites. It is a most significant National Park, full of Aboriginal culture, wildlife, and wonderment.

The Coorong contains wetlands of international recognition which support many endangered coastal flora and fauna. It is a sanctuary for birds, animals, and fish, attracting many migratory birds from as far away as Siberia.

An unspoiled ecosystem of fresh water and saline lakes, small islands, wetlands, large sand dunes and ocean beach. The Coorong is a truly outstanding and breathtaking National Park. A place of tranquillity, solitude and spiritual wellbeing; and the inspiration for our brand.

As it’s written, the Coorong is “a place that calms the mind, soothes the soul and appeases the senses”.
