Welcome to the Goolwa Aquatic Club (GAC)

The lower lakes of the Murray River are alive & well and bustling with activity. In 2012 the G.A.C were proud to officially open our brand new facility at the foreshore on Barrage Road which replaced the original clubrooms that were built in the 1960’s.

Goolwa’s ‘Aquafest’ was the first event of it’s kind which marked the special occasion, and it was a delight to see so many thousands of patrons visit the Club during the 2 days of festivities.

Moving forward from the opening day, the GAC are proud to be the parenting organisation for a range of sub committees for differing water sports, including:

  • Goolwa Vintage Boats
  • Goolwa Dinghy Sailing
  • GAC Sail Training
  • Goolwa Power Boat’s
  • Goolwa Dragon Boats

In addition the GAC Social Committee arrange all kinds of events off the water including live entertainment & functions. The brand new premises overlooking the Goolwa Channel is an ideal location for a good time where anything from a big party for a social gathering to a quiet meal & drink Wednesdays through Sundays nights can be enjoyed.

An unreal day. Great day, everyone was really friendly and allowed our team Cause 4 Concern to go through our checks as it was our first time on the water with our new combination. We will be back. See you soon.

Great to see the GAC up and going again. Has been a while since I last raced there, the 90’s when Ronda Wojcikewycz was there and they had fires back at home in NSW. There is a bit of family history involved with the forming of the club way way back (50’s). When is the next power boat get together, might bring the F1 tunnel over from Gippsland.

Thanks Jeff! The next meet is the Aquafest on the 13th and 14th of April. Your F1 boat would be an excellent addition to what is looking to be the biggest power boating event in years. We’ll email you some more details.

Fantastic doesn’t even descibe the night well enough!!!

Hi Mark, Linda asked me to remind you that her Flower Shop (Flower Spot Goolwa) is prepared to supply floral arrangements for the Aqua Fest as she did last year. Also She asked me to organise some vouchers so Flower Spot can go back to being a sponsor again.

Will be in touch soon Chris Parsons 0435104059
