|Goolwa, the end of the Murray
River's long journey
Goolwa is at the mouth of the Murray River on Lake Alexandrina, 83 km south of Adelaide and 19 km from Victor Harbour. Like many river towns, Goolwa is today a tourist destination with a number of boats operating from its historic wharf. Goolwa offers a range of quality accommodation choices. With a unique blend of historic attractions, fine food restaurants and stunning scenery, Goolwa is an ideal holiday location.
Gateway to the internationally significant wetlands of the Coorong National Park and the mighty Murray River and lakes system, the river port of Goolwa is recognised as the nation's small boat capital, and fittingly hosts the biennial Wooden Boat Festival.
It's a town tailored for watersport worshippers. You can plot a voyage of discovery on your own vessel or aboard hirecraft which range from power boats to yachts and canoes. Charter craft also cruise the Lower Murray and the Coorong.
