The Goolwa Boating Experience


The Goolwa Boating Experience (TGBE) offers guided boat charter cruises through the historic waters of Goolwa.

Our 1 or 2 hour day charters are available all-year round and cruises are structured for private groups or families (max 4 passengers) looking for a personalised tour experience rather than the traditional 'tourist bus' cruise.

Crusing through shallow, protected inland fresh water with ZERO dangerous creatures, it is surely one of the safest boating environments in Australia.

Just over an hours drive from Adelaide, Goolwa is one of the oldest towns in South Australia, the birthplace of Australia's paddle-steamer river trade and the single gateway to the vast inland waterways (over 6,500km’s of rivers) of the Murray-Darling Basin.

Our modern boat is spacious, safe and comfortable equipped with the latest safety gear and marine electronics. We even have SONAR that allows passengers to see underwater shipwrecks from the comfort of the boat.

With different scenic routes from Adelaide and a beautiful South Coast, a boat charter cruise with The Goolwa Boating Experience is the only way to see the natural wonder of the Lower Lakes & gain a unique understanding of South Australia and how vast regions of inland Australia were settled.
