Mirrors, great competition in the sailing races

The Festival date has changed!

The new dates are 22 and 23 April 2017.

Due to the risk of extremely hot weather the Festival has moved to Autumn, when Goolwa traditionally experiences milder temperatures.  The fine weather will ensure better conditions for boaties and visitors to enjoy the onwater spectacle.

Held within the Goolwa Wharf Precinct the Festival will have plenty to see and do with two days of both water and land events and the fantastic fireworks display from Hindmarsh Island Bridge on Saturday night.

Enjoy two action filled days where you can cruise on a paddle steamer, follow the pirate trail, indulge in regional food and wine, with loads of entertainment and opportunity to get up close and personal with the River’s most diverse gathering of wooden river vessels, from kayaks and sleek classic speedboats to paddle steamers.

The 2017 program will be released later this year.
