22 and 23 October 2022

The Goolwa Aquatic Club Speedboat committee is delighted to advise that after COVID postponed the 2020, 2021 and April 2022 Aquafests, the event is back on the 22nd & 23rd October 2022!  

In 2023 we will see the event return to the traditional dates of 1st & 2nd April.

Come and enjoy the ‘Goolwa Aquafest’ classic speedboat event.  It’s a weekend full of the sights and sounds of beautiful vintage, classic and modern race & speedboats strutting their stuff at the Goolwa Aquatic Club.

You will see vintage wooden hydroplanes, skiffs, classic old wooden race, and ski boats, plus fibreglass classic race & ski boats right up to modern style race boats. There will be some demonstration runs by at least one blown alcohol boat which will be spectacular in itself. When not in the water the boats will be on display in the pit area and accessible to the public who want a closer look.

The event is fully catered and family friendly with food stalls and the lawned banks for spectators to set up and get comfortable. The clubrooms are licensed, and Bombora on the River is adjacent for those that want to eat in style (recommend that you book)

This is a two-day event and admission is FREE both days. This is a full two-day event with the boats taking part in formalised heats where common styles of craft take to the water and put on a demonstration of the golden years of speedboat events.

On Saturday morning the boats are free to practice as they please and it is designed to be a relaxed atmosphere for the entrants. Saturday afternoon will see each boat group have a four-lap demo run.

Sunday is a full day of back-to-back heats with spirited driving demonstrations. Weather permitting there is a Hot Rod & Classic car display. Top all that of with a vintage aeroplane flyover buzzing the crowd, and it’s an action-packed day on land, on the water and in the air.

It’s a fantastic family day with something for everyone to enjoy.
