Things to do in Goolwa

Discover the history of Goolwa at the Goolwa National Trust Museum, home to vintage vehicles, maritime artefacts and a priceless patchwork quilt. At certain times of the year, you can also ride the Cockle Train, a historic steam train that runs from Goolwa to Victor Harbor, where you can swim at pristine beaches, hike clifftop trails and snorkel reefs in Encounter Bay.

Don’t miss seeing the famous PS Oscar W, a Swedish-made paddle steamer that dates back to 1867. You can still ride on the paddle steamer today, and embark on a Murray River cruise from the Port of Goolwa Wharf. If you’re hanging around the wharf, duck into The Steam Exchange Brewery for a refreshing craft beer and river vistas. Alternatively, grab a coffee and light meal at Hector’s on the Wharf.
