The river port of Goolwa is located at the very end of the might Murray River. It is still the location for historic paddle steamers that today ply tourists rather than freight along the river and other surrounding waterways.

Goolwa is the headquarters for the Alexandrina Council which was formed from the amalgamation of the Port Elliot and Goolwa and Strathalbyn district councils. Alexandrina Council now represents the townships of Goolwa, Port Elliot, Middleton, Hindmarsh Island, Clayton, Finniss, Currency Creek, Milang, Strathalbyn, Belvidere, Langhorne Creek, Woodchester, Mount Compass and parts of Willunga.

As well as the rivers and nearby Lake Alexandrina, Goolwa is also a popular spot for beach goers, including those hunting the Goolwa Cockle which is a prize for fishermen and also as a dining delicacy. Thousands of beachgoers can be seen doing the cockle shuffle on the beaches stretching from Goolwa through Middleton to Port Elliot between November and June each year.

Like several towns on the Fleurieu Peninsula, Goolwa has maintained many of its historic buildings which come with a range of challenges for property owners.

SC Building & Pest Inspections is regularly travelling to Goolwa, Currency Creek, Hindmarsh Island, Port Elliot and Middleton for a variety of building inspections and pest inspections.

Some of the more common issues we see are salt damp and rising damp in the historic buildings, along with timber damage from termites and borers.

Salt spray damage and structural damage caused by some of the high winds in the region are also a problem associated with being situated so close to the coast.

The nature of the soils around Goolwa, Port Elliot and Middleton means foundations are often not properly secured during construction which means we often find during building inspections that movement has occurred threatening the structural integrity of the buildings. Tell-tale signs of soil movement include cracks in walls and plaster.

SC Building & Pest Inspections also carries out methamphetamine and other drug residue testing in properties. Sadly, we’re seeing a greater need for this type of testing in a number of locations, including Goolwa.

SC Building & Pest Inspections is based in Morphett Vale but covers the entire Fleurieu Peninsula, Adelaide Hills, Southern Suburbs and Adelaide itself. We’re only just over half an hour to Goolwa, Currency Creek, Hindmarsh Island, Port Elliot, and Middleton.
