The drive from Adelaide to Goolwa takes around one hour and 20 minutes, with the choice of two main driving routes and not much time difference between them.

The Southern Expressway is the most direct route, via the McLaren Vale, also called the Gateway to the Fleurieu. The alternative, and arguably more scenic route, is the South Eastern Freeway.
