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

Just over an hours' drive from Adelaide, Goolwa is the tenth oldest town in South Australia and the birthplace of Australia's paddle-steamer river trade.

Heading to Goolwa via the Fleurieu peninsula and then returning via the Adelaide Hills, visitors can also view the unique & varied landscape that was home to many of the earliest settlers of the state.

A boat charter with Goolwa Boating Cruises is the most relaxing way to see the natural beauty of the fourth largest river system in the world, gain a unique understanding as to the creation & early development of South Australia and how the Port of Goolwa was the spark for the expansion & settlement of vast areas of inland Australia.
