Hindmarsh Island

Hindmarsh Island is situated opposite the mainland coast at Goolwa in South Australia's Fleurieu Peninsula Region, approximately 100 kilometres south east from the State capital of Adelaide. Hindmarsh Island is accessed via the Hindmarsh island Bridge which was opened in 2001 providing excellent access to the Island and the pet friendly accommodation and pet service businesses situated there. Prior to this 319 metres long bridge, access was provided by means of a ferry service from Goolwa which began in 1858.

Hindmarsh Island was discovered by explorer Charles Sturt in 1830 and became very popular with its view across the water to the mouth of the mighty Murray River. Average high temperatures range from 23 degrees celcius in summer to 15 degrees in winter and fishing is a very popular recreational activity with 7 boat ramps providing access to the surrounding waters. There is a 500 metres in length airstrip which was completed in 2008 and the Hindmarsh Island Monument which was erected in honour of pioneers Charles Sturt and Collet Barker in 1930.
