About the Historical walk
This self-guided historical walk explores the south side of Goolwa. In 1856 Mr Young Bingham Hutchinson had part of his land on the south side of Goolwa subdivided as Goolwa Extension and locally known as Little Scotland.
A number of people working in the river boat trade had come from Scoland and this subdivision contained features such as small allotments, small internal courts, carriageways and a network of walkways which followed a simple Scottish design. Early cottages were of simple design with symmetrical fronts and lean-tos at the rear.
Explore 15 historical sites, including some of these original cottages.
The inner part of Goolwa was declared a State Heritage Area in 1987, recognising its historical importance as one of the country’s most significant River Ports.
