A February 2004 trip
to Goolwa by Ron Hill
Quote: Marine Cove Resort is situated at Goolwa, within a one-hour drive from Adelaide. It is situated at the mouth of the River Murray. A short walk takes you to Goolwa Beach, so you get the best of both river and sea.
Their is also a relatively flat bikeway along the coast, which makes for excellent scenic opportunities.
The barrage across the river, separating fresh and salt water, and the Murray Mouth at Goolwa are must see spots. Boat trips are available into the Coorong area to see aboriginal sites and the many different varieties of birds, or a boat trip to the nearby Currency Creek and Ballast Stone wineries is pleasant with lunch and tastings included.
Within a half hours drive are the approximately 50 wineries at McLaren Vale, which makes a great day trip (this is one of the resort activities on the bus).
