Bar proceeds go to a good cause
Following many years of collaboration, Goolwa Surf Life Saving Club (SLSC), Surf Life Saving SA and Alexandrina Council are proud to present the new Goolwa Beach SLSC facility. The brand new building is located at the Goolwa Beach carpark overlooking the magnificent Southern Ocean.

As well as a training and meeting room, storage for watercraft and other equipment and toilet facilities for beachgoers there is an exciting new entertainment venue for locals and visitors to Goolwa Beach.

Stairs from the bottom floor, adjacent to the car park, lead to an inviting bar with a panoramic view over the sand dunes and the ocean.

It's a welcoming space with a congenial atmosphere, perfect for late afternoon refreshments in the form of wine, beer, soft drinks, tea or coffee.

The drinks menu features wine by the bottle or glass from the Fleurieu region as well as the Clare Valley and the Adelaide Hills wine regions and many popular beer options.

The bar is staffed by volunteers, keeping overheads minimal and proceeds are directed towards club operational costs; a worthwhile cause.

This new facility provides another venue for all to enjoy in Goolwa. The popular Bombora Cafe, just in front of the new building, is relocating its main restaurant operation to the Aquacaf on Barrage Road. The Bombora kiosk, however, will continue to offer coffee, cakes and ice-cream. A progressive lunch springs to mind; a glass of wine at the GSLSC, lunch at the Aquacaf, then back to Goolwa Beach for coffee and cake at Bombora kiosk. It's an opportunity to enjoy sea and river views in the same afternoon. It is entirely possible at Goolwa.
