Held within the Goolwa Wharf Precinct the Festival has 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.
See you at the next Festival on 25 and 26 February 2017.
