Just a walk up the slope and can see the sea. Not interesting at all. Can be skipped. Nothing for kids and old people

Granite Island off the coast of Victor Harbour was a great spot to wander around for an hour. Connected to the mainland by a long jetty, either walk across or get the horse drawn tram there (either way, see the tram. It's unique). Great views from the high spots. Only disappointment was the cafe was closed, even though advertising on... More

The walk across the bridge to the island is magnificent and the ride back is a lot of fun with interesting historical details about the tram and the Clydesdales that pull it, outlined on plaques inside the tram. I was there in winter weather so the facilities were not open but it looked like a lot of fun could be... More

Granite island is fantastic for couples kids but if elderly of disabled its best to travel on the horse tram over the bridge. In winter can get cold walking over the bridge to Granite Island so make sure you rug up that's for sure, windy at times. But the views are amazing, Penguins gorgeous, and if your lucky can see...

This is a beautiful walk around the island, exposed to the winds of the bay and the Southern Ocean, you see sometimes Manta Rays swimming under the walking bridge and little penguins in the nests in the rocks. An easy walk and very enjoyable, a restaurant at the end and possibility to take the horse cart back for a ride... More

Great walk along the wooden bridge from Victor Harbour beach to the island's walking trails. A few fisherpeople but no fish caught. There is a tourist rail cart ride to the island from the town lugged slowly by a solitary clydesdale. Its mid week in May and no more than 20 or so people in sight. Native flora revegetation and...

Excellent opportunity to look out upon the southern ocean. It can be windy so would recommend coming prepared. Walk around the island is approximately 2 km at an east slope with plenty of stops along the way.

The tram had shut down by the time we got there but it is a fairly short walk over the causeway. Some nice photo ops during the golden hour!
