Information

Just upstream from the wharf are the rusting remains of barge ‘Crowie’, built in Goolwa in 1911 and sank at its moorings in 1946. A further 200 metres upstream are the remains of the Sternwheeler ‘Corowa’ that was built in 1868 and sank at her moorings in 1946 after being abandoned. Part of the stern wheel rudder poles are proud of the water as well as steam pipes and parts of its boiler. If you have a boat or hire a canoe, there are further good examples further upstream past the pumping station.
