"A bustling town on the South Coast"

Located 83 kilometres to the south of Adelaide in the heart of the Fleurieu peninsula, Goolwa is a bustling seafront and riverfront town.

On the edge of the Southern Ocean, Goolwa has rolling surf and picturesque beaches. Goolwa also fronts on to Lake Alexandrina with direct access to the Coorong and Mouth of the Murray River, which are suffering from the low waterlevels and the flows from the Murray River suffer from the ongoing drought and high water usage upstream.

Goolwa as a town is alive and well, and has enjoyed a period of rapid expansion over the last ten years. As a result, Goolwa has a wide range of services, facilities and amenities.

The homes in Goolwa are large and spacious, many with large gardens and just a short distance from the beach. There are also a number of modern beach-houses in the area, as the region is a popular holiday spot.

Recreational facilities abound in this town. There is a golf course, sailing and lots of beach activities.
Only 18 kilometres from the large town of Victor Harbor (a 30 minute round trip by car), Goolwa is a popular location for families, retirees and holidaymakers.

The population of the town is very seasonal. It is absolutely packed with tourists in summer, which can make it difficult to get around, and much quieter in winter of course.
