Top Attractions within Victor Harbor

Granite Island is the number one destination when you reach Victor Harbor. Only a stone-throw away from the city, this incredible place is connected to Victor Harbor through a causeway. Park your hire car and explore the Island which is home to the Fairy Penguins, which are one of the reasons behind the popularity of the island. Since I told you about the causeway, you should know that it is intended for pedestrians and trams only. However, not any kind of tram passes on it, only an exclusive horse drawn one. So besides admiring the natural beauty and variety of wildlife on the island, getting there will also be a fun and unique experience.

Here at Granite Island Recreation Nature Park you'll get to see the magical Little Penguins! The guided penguin tours a hit at the park and you definitely need to go on one to get a healthy dose of Penguin sight-seeing! Not only that, you can discover the rest of the islands and its wonders. After a proper exploration you might want to drop by the park's café for some grub, a cup of coffee or a cool, refreshing drink!

South Australian Whale Centre

TheSA Whale Centre lets you take on the role of a true blue “whaler” and guides you as you go through conservation area habitats and come across the whales, sharks, mammals and fish. The original exhibits continue to fascinate all sorts of visitors up until today and that includes the 3D mural and the Sperm Whale vertebrae. Now, if that doesn't intrigue you, I don't know what will!

The South Australian Whale Centre proves that whale watching is one of the most intense experiences here in Victor Harbor. Mostly in the summer season, meaning from June to September, a large number of tourists gather here to watch these amazing creatures, which often come close to the shore.

Petrel Cove

So you might have been wondering where those lovely Victor Harbor beaches I've been talking about are? They're plenty of them but I really have to recommend Petrol Cove! Thermals constantly rise on each side of the Bluff and ridden by pelicans and seabirds to launch themselves into unbelievable altitudes. These thermals bring in the best waves and attract adventurous spirits who are looking for some serious surf!

Greenhills Adventure Park is an amazing recreational facility, where you will be able to do many fun activities after parking your hire car. Water sports are very popular here, including canoeing and water-sliding. Besides them, you will also experience rock-climbing, go-karting and archery, and mini-golf passionate will be pleased by a very nice course.

South Coast is the name given to the coastal side of Victor Harbor, a place that surfing passionates will adore. Halt your hire car and visit some of the most popular surfing beaches you can find here like Parsons, Waitpinga, Goolwa and Middleton.
