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.

Brilliant! Informative guides, adorable penguins. With the food issues and seals though numbers are dwindling, see them whilst you can.

There's a lovely scenic walk around the island and our little one enjoyed the horse drawn tram ride across. We had a nice ice cream treat from the cafe which also served basic meals.

A great place to experience, especially when the weather is kind and the sun shines all day. Recently had it all come together and the walk around and over the Granite Island was a fantastic walk.

You get to walk along side the horse drawn tram as it gently makes its way along the jetty.

The splendor of the protruding rock outcrops and views from atop the island are excellent. If you are visiting Victor Harbour, don't miss this piece of paradise at the southern end of South Oz.

This is a must do at Victor Harbour and it beats walking the 1k or so to the island . You. Climb on the wagon tram and the horse draws the wagon on a track to the island . Thoroughly enjoyed the ride wit commentary about the surrounds . Island good for exploring . Went late afternoon in summer nice and cool .

Scenery is fantastic. The establishment has become very worn out and run down. Plus the penguins have gone!
