Victor Harbor is a city located on the coast of the Fleurieu Peninsula, about 80 km south of Adelaide, South Australia. It is the largest population centre on the peninsula, with an economy based upon agriculture, fisheries and various industries.
The panoramic views of the rugged granite landmark Bluff and the well-known Granite Island are stunning. In winter Southern Right Whales may be seen at Encounter Bay, only metres from the shoreline. It is a highly popular tourist destination, with the city's population greatly expanded during the summer holidays.
Goolwa is a historic river port on the Murray River near the Murray Mouth in South Australia, and joined by a bridge to Hindmarsh Island. The name "Goolwa" means "elbow" in Ngarrindjeri, the local Aboriginal language.
Goolwa is approximately 100 km south of Adelaide.
The Catholic Parish of Victor Harbor/Goolwa was established in 1946. There are two Mass Centres - St Joan of Arc in Victor Harbor and St John the Apostle in Goolwa. Mass is celebrated at least once a week in each Centre.
