Photographer's Note

This photo was taken at Goolwa in South Australia. I was visiting the area with a friend a little while back. I am not sure whether this is an actually paddle boat or whether it was made just to look like one but it is pretty cute in this little marina.

Goolwa is an attractive and unusual town which was once the main entry port on the Murray River. Located only 83 km from Adelaide, Goolwa (it is said that 'goolwa' is a Ngarrindjeri word meaning 'elbow') is an historic port which is now an up-market holiday resort for Adelaide people. It is only an hour's drive from Adelaide. The main seaside (although it was inland) port on the Murray River has come an overpowering local desire to 'develop' the area which has brought Goolwa, and its battle with the local Ngarrindjeri Aboriginal people over Hindmarsh Island, and the building of the bridge to the island to the attention of all Australians. This battle continued for years and eventually the Ngarrindjeri Aboriginal people unfortunately lost their case.
