Welcome to Goolwa

Goolwa Tourism 5214 invites you to use our tourism information to plan your visit to the Alexandrina Council region, using the historic river port of Goolwa as your base. We offer you many events and experiences, for either your day trip or, we suggest, your week in Storm Boy country.

We work with other organisations promoting the mighty River Murray, especially the Inland Rivers National Marathon Register.

Goolwa, Hindmarsh Island and Mundoo Island often feature in travel documentaries. Check out the News section for more information. Did you see the report by Griff Rhys Jones in his documentary on Australia? Click for iview option.

With the loosening of restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, Goolwa tourism businesses are re-opening. Some operating hours for businesses or access to accommodation and attractions may still be limited, changed, or closed. Please follow the links provided for each business or event to check the current situation. In the meantime, our operators look forward to welcoming you to our region and stress the importance for everyone to use the safety practices advised by the medical officers - Wash your hands, observe social distancing, use sanitizers, wear masks if recommended and stay at home if you are not feeling well. Most businesses are now using QR Codes, so please be ready to use your smart phone is you have the MyGov app or enter your details on forms available in the business. Please be patient and understanding of staff who are only undertaking procedures requested by the authorities.
