Cittaslow Goolwa

At The Wharf is Back!

Last Sunday was an enormous day for Goolwa. There were so many attractions that attracted locals and visitors to the wharf precinct – a special wharf market, the Oscar W back on the water, the Cockle Train (hauled by the historic Duke of Edinburgh steam engine) and the launch of the new season of Cittaslow ‘At The Wharf’ free entry community events.
Fittingly, the weather for the day was perfect, bright, sunny, not a cloud in the sky.
Normally ‘At The Wharf’ is conducted on the last Friday of the month from 5 pm to 8 pm. But Sunday was a special day, not only part of the long weekend but 30 September is Cittaslow International Day when the 236 Cittaslow Cities and Towns around the world do something special to celebrate the organisation.
At Goolwa this meant the usual mix of local features – music, food and wine and a good time for all – plus delicious cake, complimentary for those attending, made by Cittaslow volunteers from quinces grown at the local Community Garden!
Dance band Matt and the Maniacs, a regular feature at these events, laid down the beat for the crowd. Food – Coorong Mullet Burgers, Olaf’s delicious cockles, Brisket, Pork, Haloumi buns and so much more with wine by Bleasdale and the Currency Creek winery – who could ask for anything more.
Next Cittaslow ‘At The Wharf’ is scheduled for Friday 26 October from 5 pm.
