Welcome to Goolwa - Australia's First Cittaslow

On 12 March 2007, the historic River Port of Goolwa was accredited as the first Cittaslow or "Slow Town" in Australia. Goolwa joined the international network of towns and cities that combine the efforts of Council, the business community and residents to improve the quality of life for all who live and work in their town.

This website will explain the philosophy of Cittaslow, Goolwa's journey to accreditation and the achievements and benefits of becoming a Cittaslow. It also supports our local food and wine groups and tourism operators.

Together with Katoomba Blue Mountains and Yea Murrindindi, Goolwa Alexandrina is part of the Cittaslow Australasian Network.
