Celebrate SA's History and Seafood
BoatFest Port Adelaide
October's Festival calendar continues to grow with the inaugural Port Adelaide BoatFest on the 13th and 14th giving visitors to the area a chance to revisit Port Adelaide's rich maritime history and celebrate South Australia's seafood industry like never before.
Navigating one's way around the Port and concerns about parking will be sorted with great transport options including a free shuttle service around town and for the first time, water-taxis will give visitors a fabulous tour and view of the region from the river with both options ensuring ease of access to all the activities.
BoatFest Port Adelaide
BoatFest features a huge range of craft - from Viking and Dragon boats to magnificent wooden hulled speedboats like something out of a James Bond movie. See beautiful wooden yachts, fishing dinghies and cruisers that elicit memories of romance and yesteryear – think Hepburn and Bogey in African Queen! The craftsmanship of these hand-built beauties is evident and will be demonstrated across the weekend at numerous workshops and the colourful boats sail past up the river each afternoon will delight 'boaties' and 'non-boaties' alike as it has for many years in Goolwa as a biennial event.
On river activities also include dragon boat races, your chance to try kayaks and canoes, fire and rescue displays, rowing and much more to see and do, whilst landlubbers can enjoy a stroll through the markets, try their hand at numerous arts and craft activities and indulge in some amazing food. Click here for the full program.
An integral off water component of this inaugural festival will be the South Australian Seafood Celebration featuring master classes from some of our best-loved seafood providers, and a chance to pre-order your Christmas prawns and magnificent seafood dinners!
Chef Paul Baker from the award-winning Botanic Garden Restaurant will introduce his menu comprising the freshest local seafood – from Tommy Ruff, Calamari, Crabs, Kinkawoonka Mussels, Goolwa Pipi's, Bluefin Tuna Sashimi, Spencer Gulf Prawns, Hiramasa Kingfish and more which will make for a fantastic night out.
