Clayton Bay 89 kilometres from Adelaide map reference J6 This secluded, riverside town is bordered by classic Murray River cliffs. A quiet family getaway perfect for birdwatching, camping, sailing, fishing and canoeing.

Currency Creek 84 kilometres from Adelaide map reference G6 Now a well-established wine region with several popular wineries and cellar doors, Currency Creek’s earliest claim to fame was that it was once proposed as the site for the South Australian capital. Lions Park provides a peaceful, serviced picnic spot beside a spring- fed stream.

Goolwa 89 kilometres from Adelaide map reference G6 Australia’s first Cittaslow town, Goolwa was once a thriving river port – now it’s a popular holiday destination. Goolwa was the only place in Australia where paddlesteamers and steam trains met to carry produce inland for shipping overseas. Steam trains and paddlesteamers are now used for locals and tourists to enjoy the experiences of yesteryear with PS Oscar W, an authentic paddlesteamer over 100 years old and the Cockle Train which travels from Goolwa to Victor Harbor. With many historical features intact, the town’s present day life is as a busy regional centre. It is also a popular gateway to the Coorong National Park and the Lakes system at the mouth of the Murray River. Goolwa fronts the Southern Ocean, take a swim in the pristine waters.
