A day of stifling Summer heat on the Goolwa Wharf where a large crowd has amassed around a couple of large historic paddle steamers which are about to depart. As this recording begins, a boat race is coming to an end as various announcements are made over the P.A, sails ripple in the air and a bell occasionally chimes. As the larger of the paddle steamers begins to leave the dock, a group of bagpipers and a sole drummer (positioned on the rear upper deck) start to play, as the paddle steamer crosses the audible field and gradually fades into the distance.
