The Vogalonga Down Unda is organized by a local Working Group under the auspices of Cittaslow Goolwa Inc. The Working Group is comprised of members of Cittaslow Goolwa, the Goolwa Aquatic Club, Canoe the Coorong and the Coorong Dragons Dragonboat Club.
The historic River Port of Goolwa was accredited as the first Cittaslow or ‘Slow Town’ in Australia and the first town outside of Europe to receive that designation.
Cittaslow International is an organisation founded in Italy and inspired by the Slow Food movement which originated in Milano, Italy. Cittaslow’s goals include improving the quality of life in towns by slowing down its overall pace of life. Our event is a perfect expression of this vision and builds on Goolwa’s already establsihed links with Italy itself.
The event organizers wish to acknowledge the assistance provided by Alexandrina Council for the conduct of this event.
