and close to the River Mouth where the Murray River completes its journey and joins the Southern Ocean.
It's ideally located for sailing windsurfing, and skiing and yet is within walking distance of the lovely township of Goolwa.
This pristine location has the calmness of being on the River Murray as well as the energising surf of Goolwa Beach just a short walk around the corner.
Close to the best local cuisine: Aquacaf on the River and just around the corner on Goolwa Beach are the most delicious fish burgers and gourmet menu at Bombora.
