- About us
The river port of Goolwa is recognised as the nation’s small boat capital, and, hosts the biennial Wooden Boat Festival.
It’s a town tailored for watersports. You take your own voyage on your own vessel or aboard hire boat which range from power boats to yachts and canoes. Charter craft also cruise the Lower Murray and the Coorong.
Signal Point River Murray Interpretive Centre and its fleet of pensioned paddle-steamers
rekindle memories of the glory days of the river boats, while steam trains
run between Goolwa, Port Elliott and Victor Harbour. You can also step back
into town and transport history by hitching a ride round the Goolwa hot spots
in Clydesdale-powered covered wagons.
