Granite Island is simply awesome for views! There is alot of chances to walk and climb all over the island! Great photo opportunities! Its fun to walk accross the old bridge or travel slowly on the cart pulled by horse. Sometimes its good for whale watching or finding little penguins. Worth travelling too.

Caught the tram to Granite Island across the bridge, which was a great novelty but could walk across comfortably, or ride the tram one way. $9 return or $7 one way. Once there we walked around the island, taking our time and the paths were an easy walk.

If you are fit enough I would suggest walking into the island rather than using the tram or horse. We enjoyed walking around the island and if you are wanting to see the penguins you need to book the guided tour by 4pm. My husband and youngest daughter did this and it lasted about 2 hours. Make sure you have... More

It's a nice walk to granite island. The horse drawn tram is pretty pricey considering how easy the walk is! Not much else to see in Victor Harbour so it's worth the visit.

Long walk with ups and downs. The path takes you all around the coast line of the island. There is a boardwalk with steps up behind the cafe and toilets to see the fabulous waves on the rocks. Then the path takes you to the highest point looking out over the sea. Then down and around to look at the... More

This is a nice place to visit with children. Nice graded walking trails around the island. An evening visit followed by the penguin tour makes for a nice 5-6 hours. Bring in food and water as the kiosk seems to be closed.

We saw people on wheelchairs as most of the island is gentle and easy short walk expect for few stairs. Highly recommended as great views and history of the past including the formation of the island

Good views and though the walk around the island is a tad too tiring, the views are spectacular. If you sore legs or problems with long walks I suggest taking the horse tram.

Took a day trip from Adelaide to visit Victor Harbor and we weren't disappointed. Great town, plenty to see and do, amazing scenery. Would definitely consider coming back and perhaps staying a few days so we could see and do more.
