Links and Lakes in the Langhorne Valley – Goolwa North, South Australia

Goolwa North is a suburb of Goolwa, South Australia, a thriving resort destination on the Fleurieu Peninsula. While Goolwa was originally a principal inland port for freight along the Murray River system, the development of the railways demanded that Goolwa find a new livelihood. In the immediate term, this meant that the citizenry would turn to fishing and agriculture.

The focus on agriculture was intended to provide industry, but has had an unanticipated side effect of transforming the Langhorne Valley region into one of Australia’s most important wine producing regions. Attention to the environment has also been used to create some of the area’s finest vistas, great holiday accommodation with a range of outdoor activities for holidaymakers of all stripes.

Play:

Goolwa North is the perfect place for your holiday home away from home. Book your holiday rental accommodations here and create a centralized “base of operations” for your holiday season.

Golfers will be ecstatic to find the range of opportunities within a short drive of Goolwa North. Start off with the nearby Goolwa Golf Course. This is a 9-hole, par 60, 4936-meter course with challengingly narrow fairways. The rough is deep, so keeping your ball on the “straight and narrow” is a technical challenge. The course is only 10 minutes southwest of the town center, and is a good start to your morning. After a quick lunch, or a nap at your holiday rental, consider an afternoon at the South Lakes Golf Club.

South Lakes is a private club that welcomes visitors to its 18 hole, par 70 course. There are 4 open tournaments annually, and the course is fully equipped with clubhouse, bar, restaurant, and gaming room. Greens and fairways of the 5813-meter course are Santa Ana Couch. You’ll find the course 10 minutes south-southwest of Goolwa North.

When you have more time, there are three additional courses within thirty-five minutes of Goolwa North:

Victor Harbor Golf Club – 18 holes, 72 par, 5962-meter course length. Have a drink at the Navigator’s Restaurant for relaxation and great views afterwards.

McCracken Country Club – The 18-hole links and lakes layout, designed by Tony Cashmore, carries 85 bunkers and 14 lakes on a 6066-meter par 72 course.

Strathalbyn Golf Club – 18 holes, par 72, 5727 meters. The course offers small but consistent greens and no bunkers, but don’t worry – natural hazards formed by trees, dams, and quite deep creeks ensure that you have adequate challenge!

Sip:

Another calling card of the Langhorne Valley is the viticulture industry here. Grapes from the Valley are essential ingredients for many large vintners, and there are numerous boutique wineries crafting estate-bottled wines. These are clustered particularly around the towns of Currency Creek (10 minutes from Goolwa North) and Langhorne Creek (about 45 minutes away), but with thinner concentrations between. The climate here is influenced by warm summer winds from the Southern Ocean running across Lake Alexandrina before hitting the vineyards. This keeps temperatures lower and more stable, with a higher humidity during the growing season. Regional vintages cover a surprisingly wide range of styles and grapes. You’ll find sparkling wines, chardonnays, cabernet sauvignon, Shiraz, Riesling, Grenache, merlot, moscato, and more. Pay special attention to Verdelho, a specialty of the region that is seeing attention as an early-maturing table wine. Book your holiday rental home in Goolwa North, and find yourself centre-stage to all of the vineyards and cellar doors you could hope for.

Weather:

Goolwa North shares a temperate climate with Adelaide and points between. In the warmer season (December through February), daytime highs will average about 27 degrees Celsius, with night time lows of about 15 degrees. Cooler weather arrives from June through August. Days are still enjoyable at 16 degrees on average, and night time temperatures might require a second layer of clothes to cope with 7 degree lows. The rainfall is moderate year round, so is not much cause for concern. If you’re planning your holiday around the Easter or summer school breaks, reserve your accommodations up front to avoid disappointment in terms of location – the best spots will fill fast.

Fly:

• Book your rental home. • Select any London area airport and your choice of carrier. • Book a flight to Adelaide. • On arrival, hire a car. Coaches are available, but will limit your mobility during the holiday. • Drive 90 km south from the airport, and begin enjoying Goolwa North!

Beautiful House

5 of 5
We had the most lovely 2 nights here and wished we'd had longer. It's a perfect house for families, spacious, well equipped, close to the beach and beautiful views. Our weather was pretty terrible but it just didn't matter! We were happy, warm and watched the storm from our lounge. I can't recommend this house highly enough and can't wait to return.

Fantastic Value for Money

5 of 5
Longreach is a fantastic place to stay in Port Elliot. Perfect location to enable walking to the beach, cafes, vintage shops and pubs. It is a very clean, well equipped and comfortable home. The two living areas both have really comfortable couches for the kids and adults to enjoy their own zones too which was great. We didn't get to use the outdoor area but it would be great on a Summers day. It was a really lovely place to stay, look forward to going back again soon. Nicola
