Victor Harbor

Victor Harbor - Fleurieu Peninsula - South Australia

Having risen above its controversial early days where Victor Harbour's port revolved around the ancient activities of whaling and seal slaughters in the pristine waters, Granite Island and the town itself has emerged from these archaic times with fantastic results. Located 80 kilometres south of Adelaide this holiday town is the embodiment of the quintessential Australian holiday offering mesmerising views, sandy beaches, pumping surf and plenty of sunshine. You may just find southern right whales breezing around the crystal waters of Encounter Bay and cheeky penguins at Granite Island.

Today, Granite Island is a recreation park with a multifaceted history and visitors can experience something a little bit different by taking in the stunning scenery aboard the last Clydesdale-drawn tram as it clops its way across the 600 metre causeway linking the island to Victor Harbour. Discover what lies beneath the Southern Australian waters at the South Australian Whale Centre and history at the Encounter Coast Discovery Centre.

Activities abound with an historic Ferris wheel and dodgem cars at the amusement park on the beach, Steamranger Heritage Railway, journeys aboard the Cockle Train and soar the lofty heights on a helicopter joy flight. Victor Harbour also offers loads of accommodation, entertaining events and great cafes and restaurants.
