We traveled from Victor Harbor to Goolwa and return on the Cockle train. We were hoping that as the weather had turned cooler that the train would be towed by their steam engine, but not to be. The country around the track was still very dry in spite of the rain so the risk of starting a fire was too great. The restored 1960 model diesel rail motor towed the restored carriages and it was still a fantastic trip along the coast and back again. The Goolwa market runs on Sundays and it is right adjacent to the station where you get dropped off. We wandered up the main street of Goolwa and found that the Goolwa Hotel has a $12 two course roast for lunch. Excellent value especially in light of the fact that you can serve yourself to vegetables or salad as well.
