We walked on the jetty across to the island and then did the circular path all the way round Granite Island. The man made path is in good condition and takes you past the granite boulders. The boulders are quite big and are interesting to see. There are good views back to the mainland and out to sea as well.... More

I hadn't been to Granite Island in years, so this was a lovely return and I wasn't disappointed. I'm recovering after a big operation and had lost considerable weight so this was a test for me to walk across the Causeway to the Island, I disscovered, by Googling, that the walk from the tram point to the kiosk was a...

I haven't yet taken the tram across to the island but it's a nice piece of history that they've maintained. The walk around the island takes about an hour and provides great views over the harbour and out to sea. On a partially cloudy day, you get to see the differences in the colour of the water as you look... More

This is a beautiful place to wander around and take in the amazing scenery. You can sit and ponder life while enjoying the view. Lovely walking trail around the whole island allows easy access and mobility

Took the historic horse tram to the island and walked back. A pleasant and easy walk around the island with great views looking back at the coast and a few small islands and reefs out sea. Not a big big swell running the day we visited but waves crashing on to the rocks on the seaward side of the island... More

This little island that you can easily walk around is absolutely breathtaking and well worth a visit. Although I didn't spy any little penguins I had an amazing time taking in the scenery and its other wildlife. Only disappointment was the closure of its kiosk. I will keep coming back to this national treasure :)
