Street Names & Lagoon Names
The Marina Hindmarsh Island introduces you to the history behind your Street names & Lagoon names
The naming of the streets and lagoons at The Marina Hindmarsh Island represents a wealth of local history. Each street is named after a paddle steamer constructed at the Port of Goolwa between 1853 –1914, and the lagoons are named after the early explorers who discovered and surveyed the region.
This booklet provides you with a brief summary of both the exploration of Goolwa and the vessels built here and the river trade they encouraged, which were responsible for bringing our region to life.
