“great day trip form Adelaide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

A worthwhile place to visit. We walked over on the causeway and that let me get some good photos of the horse-drawn tram. The draught horses are rotated so it is not just one poor old Neddy. Do allow long enough to to the walk around the island (about 1.5km). We saw seals, shingleback lizards, shags, and a good look at a stingray in the shallow water by the causeway.
The cafe does a great lunch (but don't sit outdoors if you don't like seagulls). Victor Harbour has some interesting shops in lovely old buildings too. On the way back to town we stopped at several wineries that are in that region.

“Unique spot with great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

This was my third visit to Granite Island (and the first in sunshine!!)
The walk across to the island is easy and relaxing.
Stunning 180 degree views are enjoyed before arriving at the Cafe. It serves snacks, meals and a nice coffee. Stay a while to soak up the peaceful spot.
For more exercise, the island circuit is another highlight. A gentle stroll brings you back to shore.
The horse tram can also be taken in either or both directions.
Overall a must do in Victor Harbour.

Granite Island was a joy ;-) many years since last visit. Staff went above and beyond to retrieve an earring which fell between the boards - happy to visit again in the future.

“Love the Penguins”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The Penguin Centre is great as are the walks with the views. Travelling by horse drawn coach adds a bit to the adventure. Food & drinks are all reasonably priced and they have a great souvenier shop.
