The multi award winning Festival held within the Goolwa Wharf Precinct provides a weekend filled with on water and on land action, loads of entertainment and opportunity to get up close and personal with wooden river vessels. The Festival will showcase over 200 wooden boats from putt putts to paddle steamers and dragon boats to speed boats.

The internationally acclaimed Festival is one of Australia's premier maritime events and is characterised by the charm of Goolwa Wharf and the opportunity to connect with boat owners in a relaxed atmosphere. Join us for 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.
