Take a short stroll or horse tram ride over the wooden causeway that connects the mainland at Victor Harbor to Granite Island Recreation Park. Enjoy the coastal scenery and discover the island's interesting history along the Kaiki Walk or go fishing from the jetty, or causeway (no fishing from breakwater). You may even spot a southern right whale between June and October.

The walk out to Granite Island, around 650 metres, is excellent and well worth the effort. The sea views, on a clear sky day, are superb, with deep blue water on both sides. Many people were taking the horse drawn tram but in truth, it...More

Granite Island is arguably one of, if not the, main attractions in VH. You can opt to walk out along the raised wooden causeway or else take the quaint horse drawn tram car (or walk one way and the tram the other). The walk to...More

This is a relaxing way to spend a couple of hours, the walk across the old jetty to the island is pleasant, the water was lovely & clear. walking around the island isn't overly exerting but the views are spectacular,

A walk to Victor Harbor's Granite Island is a must for any tourist to the area. Don't worry about the horse drawn tram, it's a waste of money. Just take in the views along the walk and the amazing photo opportunities.

Enjoy a stroll around the island, great views out to sea and back towards the town. Pack a drink though as unfortunately the Cafe on the island has closed down.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Can someone please tell me the cost of the penguin tour on Granite Island please? And given its late departure time, is it suitable for small children (under 4). I would prefer not to keep them out late at night if they're only maybe going to see one or two penguins. Thank you

Can I take my dogs for a walk with me and partner around the island

I'm afraid not - dogs and cats are prohibited - there are even spot fines for anyone who misses/ignores the signs. Walk out to the Bluff instead just along the coast a bit at Encounter Bay
