I was about to reply 'only what's in Parsons', but it isn't in that book.
All I know (with photos) is at

Sean may have published more, including technical specifications (maybe).
Use the search function in the sidebar.

It was stranded at Hindmarsh Island opposite Goolwa for years when the river was low but disappeared a year or two ago after the water returned. Does anyone know where it is now?

James,
If you are in contact with the current owners, you might know where it is moored.
Your wording hints that the Hindmarsh Island owners have sold up.
One prospect is Wellington Marina, which is hidden from the river.
Mayflower was kept there.  The marina went dry, and ceased trading, and even had the phone cut at one stage.  It must be thriving again.
There are two marinas below Murray Bridge where small paddleboats have been kept, hidden from the river.  IIRC both have inlet moorings and river mooring, but the river portion is the side of Long Island where through powerboating isn't allowed.  They are Riverglen and Long Island marinas.

My edition of Parsons is 1996.  Killawarra could be more recent (but not much more), or could have been an oversight.

Hi Roderick,
The Killawarra is now under ownership of someone I used to work with, and is moored near Clayton and undergoing some fairly major restoration!
