Goolwa Wooden Boat Festival 2005
Goolwa hosts a number of events linked to its historic past. As a major inland port it uses the remaining extensive wharf facilities to host the biennial South Australian Wooden Boat Festival. This attracts enthusiasts and visitors from all over the country, and in addition to the huge number and range of boats on display, the program has various other attractions - a marquee housing an eclectic range of musicians, trade displays and the 'rough and ready' boat building competition to name a few. Teams of two people get two sheets of ply, a couple of lengths of pine, some cable ties and sikeflex (a marine silicon). They get two hours to make a boat, then have to race it out around a mark in the channel. Life jackets are required, with good reason.
