We walked over to Granite Island via the causeway. Along side the Clydesdale horse and carriage. It is a lovely natural island featuring lots of birds, penguins and if you are lucky you might see a seal on seal island. We had a lovely lunch in the cafe, with a large choice of meals and or coffee and cake etc.... More

This is a lovely spot for couples or families, safe, clean plenty of facilities. The ride over is just a great experience, you can walk one way or go on the horse drawn ride, which we did.

The walk out and around Granite Island is a photographers dream. There is so much to see, the island it's self and the views from it too. In summer it is beautiful but also in winter too, with the cooler weather bringing spectacular skies and seas.Well worth the visit and the walk around.

Loved it all, take a picnic and enjoy a day out, well worth the walk over the causeway...bit windy on the south side, but great views of the harbour and the bluff

A pleasant walk out across the causeway and around the island. Nice rocky ocean scenery. It's 3 kms from the start of the cause, around the island and back to the start. Some slopes and steps to negotiate.

Great walk around the island to see the land and ocean from all angles. Good information on the island and its history.

We walked across to the island on a windy wet day,it was exhilarating with the rain squalls and waves. We walked around the island and the wonder continued... But why charge $18 a couple to see the penguins feed 3-4 times a day...we love penguins any time so encourage us in with a lower price anytime. The cafe was closed...lunchtime... More

We enjoyed our walk across the bridge from Granite Island to Victor Harbor. I like the idea of the Notice Boards with information regarding the penguins and environmental issues, benches to sit on and watching people fish from their boats.

So 15mins out from penguin show we thought we would grab a quick cappuccino. Head back with a few mins to spare and told it was full. Bit disappointed. The man was nice but not too happy about not getting in. The walk around was nice enough.

We walked over to Granite Island on a beautiful warm Autumn day at the end of May. The walk on the jetty over the water was lovely and my children enjoyed seeing the horse tram walk past. The Island itself is a bit of a let down and rather scruffy now the cafe and icecream parlour seem to have closed... More
