Goolwa Boating Cruises

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

Their two hour day charters are available all-year for private groups or families (maximum four) providing a unique and convenient cruise to discover how water shaped their state, even deciding the location of their capital Adelaide.

Cruising through shallow, protected waters with no dangerous creatures, it is 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 and the birthplace of Australia's paddle-steamer river trade - one of the first national industries.

A scenic return trip through the Adelaide Hills, visitors experience the unique and varied landscape that was home to many of the earliest settlers.

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