Goolwa Boating Cruises

Goolwa Boating Cruises offers small group guided boat charter cruises through the single gateway to the vast inland waterways (over 6,500km’s of rivers) of the Murray-Darling Basin.

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.

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

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.
