Goolwa holiday homes in SA

The AAF have made the decision to sell two of the Goolwa properties in Feb 2022. From March 2022 bookings will only be taken for one property.


Goolwa is located 83km south of Adelaide on the Murray River, 11km from the Murray mouth and 2km from the Southern Ocean.

The holiday homes are located on Bristow-Smith Avenue adjacent to the first fairway of the South Lakes Golf Course. The course is a 5,735m, 18 hole, par 70 course with a rating of 68 and has fully grassed greens and fairways. Four memberships are available so the occupants of the home can access the full facilities for the club, except entry to club competitions. Other guests may play by paying green fees. The clubhouse is fully licensed with excellent bar facilities and meals.

The Lower Murray River is ideal for water skiing. The open beach is a noted surfing spot but is not recommended for beginners. The Murray River at Goolwa and Hindmarsh Island is well known for fresh water fishing for callop, bream, perch and European carp.

Salt water fishing by boat in the Coorong, Murray Mouth, Mundoo Channel and the Goolwa Channel below the Barrage. Sea bream, mulloway (butterfish), mullet and salmon trout are available.


Located on large grassed blocks, three modern air-conditioned holiday homes each feature:

  • three bedrooms, designed to accommodate a family of six
  • queen bed in main bedroom
  • two single beds in the second and third bedrooms
  • large living and dining areas
  • tiled bathrooms and separate toilet
  • a laundry complete with washing machine
  • a large kitchen with electric stove, microwave oven and refrigerator containing a large freezer compartment
  • a colour TV, DVD players and reverse cycle air-conditioning
  • a spacious carport under the roofline of the house
  • blankets and pillows for all beds (guests are required to bring their own sheets and towels).
