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!

Go over to Granite Island on the Tram. Its fab! Clamber over the granite rocks and drink in the sea air and the lovely views. Call into the Red Noodle Bar along the sea front for some good Oriental food.

A definite place for nature buffs. Horse drawn carriage available for those who wants a relaxing trip from the mainland to the island for a fee. Otherwise the long walk above crystal clear sea water is highly recommended. If Mother nature is an artist, then some of her works can be witnessed here. With her brush of sand and sea... More

scenic view. Loved the walk up granite island. The weather was great. Had a good view of the ocean around us. Was a bit intimidated by the huge boulders.

Even with inclement weather, Granite Island was amazing. The path around the island is realtively short (~1km) and not too taxing (I did it in a moon boot). Some great views and you can get there by the horse-drawn tram.

For adult's, it is like watching paint dry, it is loverly and worth a look , but entertainment value,....well no! The horse drawn carriage is also very nice but only book one way, it's worth a try and every one is different , great for kids, and not very expensive.only one warning it is a fair walk across to grant...

Walked across the causeway and around the island although you can take a horse drawn tramcar, they looked amazing for such old carriages. The seaward side of the island had huge waves crashing against the Granite rocks which looked spectacular.

Being a "little older person," I loved the stairs leading from the kiosk: these steps were wide and not too deep.They were well maintained. The views were magnificent. It was a cold and wet day on our visit so the rain jacket came in handy but there are plenty of places to shelter in. This is a very easy walk,... More

This is a great place to visit on a clear day, You can chose to walk across the jetty to the Island which takes roughly 20 minutes or catch a horse drawn tram across at a price of $6.00 per person. The Island itself is a good long walk with unusual rock formations and great views of the Ocean and... More
