Visit Goolwa: a historic river port where the Murray mouth and Southern Ocean meet.
Explore towering sand dunes, meander down quiet waterways and roam along snow-white sandy beaches. Goolwa is just an hour’s drive south of Adelaide and is a historic river port where the Murray mouth and Southern Ocean meet. With front row seats to epic sunsets over the Coorong, an important Aboriginal culture of the Ngarrindjeri people, and abundant wildlife, Goolwa is a popular holiday destination. Every odd-numbered year Goolwa hosts The Wooden Boat Festival celebrating the town’s historic wharf, maritime history and its modern beach-side lifestyle.
