Make a Holiday Rental Apartment in Goolwa, Australia, Your Home Away From Home

The South Australian town of Goolwa can be found at the mouth of the Murray River, some 60 miles south of Adelaide. The town is located on the Fleurieu Peninsula, named after Charles Pierre Claret de Fluerieu - a French hydrographer and explorer who mapped this region of South Australia in 1802. It is now an extensive wine-growing region, as well as a popular tourist draw, due to the long sandy beaches which line the coastline. Tourists from the UK may find this region slightly off the beaten track from the better known Australian destinations found mainly along its eastern coastline. This is a shame, as tourists spending their holidays in Goolwa will find that there is a good choice of self catering accommodation available in and around the town, in the form of apartments and villas.

Close to all facilities...we walked to the local Hotel for dinner...had friends over for a BBQ and game of table tennis.... the Sunday Market was across the road. What more could one ask for... We will certainly be back again...Thank you Garry
