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.

Things to Do on Holiday in Goolwa, Australia

Due to its coastal location, water sports are by far the most popular activity amongst visitors spending their holidays in Goolwa. The Fleurieu Peninsula boasts numerous good surfing beaches along both its western and southern coastlines, perhaps the most notable being Waitpinga, Middleton, Moana and Seaford. As well as surfing, windsailing and jet skiing, visitors may also bathe in the warm waters of the Southern Ocean or enjoy a boat trip from nearby Cape Jervis to Kangaroo Island. Much of the island consists of national parks and conservation areas, where many species of Australia’s unique wildlife, including kangaroos, wander free and uninhibited.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Goolwa, Australia

There are a number of interesting tourist attractions and sights to be found within the town of Goolwa, perhaps the most notable being the PS Oscar W paddle steamer and the bi-annual South Australian Wooden Boat Festival. Many visitors, however, will naturally be drawn to the big city attractions of Adelaide, just an hour’s drive away to the north. The state capital and Australia’s fifth largest city boasts numerous interesting places to visit and explore, mainly within the relatively compact and easily navigated streets of the downtown district. Of particular interest to most tourists enjoying their holidays in Goolwa will be St. Peter’s Cathedral, the South Australian Museum, Adelaide Botanical Gardens and the National Wine Centre. The city also boasts some great shopping experiences and a thriving arts and music scene.

Weather in Goolwa, Australia

One of the biggest draws for most tourists from the UK looking to spend their holidays in Goolwa is its weather. The town enjoys a warm, Mediterranean-like climate, with temperatures averaging around 28 degrees Celsius in the summer and around 15 degrees in the winter. Most of the town’s average annual rainfall of 21 inches will fall in the winter months.

Travel to Goolwa, Australia

Travellers looking to start their long journey from the UK to Goolwa will first fly to Sydney-Kingsford Smith Airport (SYD). British Airways and Qantas operate regular flights here from the UK, departing from London Heathrow (LHR). They will then need to take a connecting flight on to Adelaide Airport (ADL), with Qantas or Jetstar Airways.

Great property

4 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in this house, great location with easy access to shops, beach and river. Safe and secure for pets and kids. Loved sitting in the sunroom enjoying a coffee in the mornings and the two living areas and bathrooms are handy especially with kids! We will be back again!
