The Goolwa History Boat Cruise

PS Oscar W at the Goolwa Wharf (Adrian Kemp)

Uncover Goolwa’s rich history in cruise boat comfort. In this personalised tour, you’ll visit key sites and live the stories of this once flourishing port at the end of the Murray River. Home of the Ngarrindjeri, the culmination of Sturt's 1830 Murray expedition that catalysed South Australia’s founding, Goolwa’s history is revealed. Discover Baudin/Flinders’ historic 1802 encounter; early trade, settlement and politics; the birthplace of the paddle steamer river trade; and wonder why Adelaide is an inland capital in the age of water transport. Enjoy this fascinating tour at a relaxed pace.

The boat is stable and easy to board; assistance available.

Accessibility information

We have a customised boat entry frame which provides excellent handholds and support, however you need to step into and out of the boat so passengers must have mobility equivalent to climbing a short set of stairs.
