What to do!

There are a million things to enjoy in and around Goolwa.

Wonderful walks through the dunes, birdwatching along the river where you will spy numerous pelicans and black swans, four-wheel driving along the beach all the way to the Murray Mouth with a bit of cockling thrown in along the way.

Walking and biking trails stretch from Goolwa to Victor Harbor taking in some of SA's most stunning coastline and hotspots for whale watchers. If you don't want to travel under your own steam, take the historic Cockle Train.

Two minutes walk from Gool-a-watu there's windsurfing, sailing and jetskiing. If you haven't got the equipment, it is usually available to hire.

Further along, river cruises offer fabulous trips to the Coorong. If you would rather skipper your own boat, they can be hired at the Hindmarsh Marina on Hindmarsh Island, while Narnu Farm on Hindmarsh Island is a great horse riding venue. If you are after fresh fish - and haven't had any luck with a line - fishermen on Hindmarsh Island at Mundoo Channel sell everybody's locally caught favourites - Coorong mullet and mulloway.

You'll also be well fed and watered at many excellent wineries and restaurants to be found in and around Goolwa, enjoy the Sunday markets or simply put your feet up at Gool-a-watu, relax on the balcony and soak up the views right at your doorstep!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful property.... Excellent position We had a wonderful Easter with all the family at Beautiful Gool-a-watu. We could not of wished for anything more..... The property catered for the whole family with a main bedroom and en suite for mum and dad and a separate self contained area for my daughters and son in laws plus a spacious living area and many balcony settings for all to be together for a meal or bbq or a few drinks to soak in the amazing scenery and serenity. The property owners were most welcoming with a card, wine and chocs on arrival. The whole family were impressed with the cleanliness of the property. All our needs and more were catered for and we would all love to visit again. Highly recommend Gool-a-watu to anyone looking for affordable 5 star accommodation. *****

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent stay We were a group of 4 couples and the layout of this house was perfect for us. It was in a good position for the golfers and the surfers and swimmers. We took a bike and that was helpful for getting to the shops for quick trips.
