Owner description: Take a short stroll or horse tram ride over the wooden causeway that connects the mainland at Victor Harbor to Granite Island Recreation Park. Enjoy the coastal scenery and discover the island's interesting history along the Kaiki Walk or go fishing from the jetty, or causeway (no fishing from breakwater). You may even spot a southern right whale between June and October.

If your into Australian early history Granite island is a must. It is also a great place to see penguins. There is a penguin wildlife exhibit worth seeing.

There is nothing i disliked, the service and staff are excellent as we always stay here for a relaxing time . We stay here at least five times a year, as you can be assured of peace and quiet at night. We only eat here as the meals are excellent .

Well worth a visit.
.A very pleasant / easy stroll acroos the bridge.
A heathy stroll around the island enjoying some stunning views, followed by a nice cuppa at the cafe by the tram stop.
Return to Victor Harbor on the horse drawn tram.

PERFECT.

my only nag is the fact they mispell the word Harbour

Because of the horsetram being out of service we had to walk the causeway and we realize that this walk was perhaps even nicer than the trip with the horsetram. Beautiful islands with great views. A nice and very doable walk.
