Goolwafind.com.au is a new online directory for Goolwa businesses, groups and services. Goolwa, located on the south coast of South Australia is a superb holiday and residential destination. The place has history, character, culture and natural features in abundance. Art bubbles out of this community like uncorked sparkling wine, with galleries showcasing local talent left, right and centre.
Goolwa bobs about on the waters of the river and the sea. Aquatic tendencies are not easily submerged in a place like this. Whether it be boats of sail, or purring marine machines, the Goolwa wharf and Murray River are a mecca for those who like to get the hem of their pants wet. Wooden boat festivals and regattas attract crowds of South Australians like bikinis on the bums of beachside beauties. The surf swells at Goolwa too and board riders don rashies to catch the waves as they break across the bays.
Fishing is a favourite past time of the holiday visitor to these southern shores. They bring their boats to ply the seas in hope of a catch of Mullaway or Snapper. Lines run out to tempt the tastebuds of these ocean going creatures and bringing home a feed of fish puts the smile on the faces of those who stayed ashore. Panfried fresh fish with a touch of lemon and garlic, and a glass of beer or wine; yum.
You can golf in Goolwa at South Lakes Golf Club. You can also bowl, strike tennis balls and/or watch the footy. Walking by the river and watching the rich birdlife is a pleasure in itself at this south coast treasure. Pelicans and Ibis skim over waters and glide on the air currents seemingly for miles. Flocks of birds follow schools of fish in a nature dance that wings its way down the river against the perfect backdrop of beautiful skies.
