Goolwa Beach: Where To Go / Sightseeing

South Lakes Golf Club

A seaside resort where the River Murray meets the Southern Ocean. Play golf on our 18 hole course with lush fairways and excellent greens, set against a backdrop of sand dunes. The design of the course provides golfers of all ages, with differing skill levels, the opportunity to enjoy a round of golf without the use of motorised transport. The relatively flat terrain makes the course a pleasant walk while listening to the waves crashing on the beach in the background.

The course is not long but still provides a challenge to the low handicappers, as accuracy is the priority, particularly approach shots to the greens. This course is a par 70 and has an Australian course rating of 70 and is 5,773 metres.

Golf course open during daylight hours.

Paddle Steamer Oscar W

The Oscar W is a steam driven wood fired 107 year old paddle steamer built at Echuca, Victoria which is situated at the wharf at the River Port of Goolwa South Australia.

Since achieving survey standard in 2008 we have been taking paying passengers on a one hour cruise three times on a cruising day. We give them the experience of this old vessel, allow them to feel, smell, hear and see what was involved in years gone by to operate one of these vessels.

During the cruise we go up to the Barrage just before the Murray Mouth then back under the bridge to Hindmarsh Island and travel up river a short distance. This is a true working Paddle Steamer that was primarily built to be a work horse and help to develop the inland waters of Australia. It is a unique piece of history which needs to be experienced to understand how this country of ours was opened up along the great Murray River.

It is moored at the Wharf at Goolwa in front of the Goolwa Riverboat Centre which is open seven days a week also allowing the public to view the Oscar on any day.
