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.

The walk across the Causeway is a good form of exersize. Climbing to the top of the rock formation is exillerating as you get sprayed form the ocean crashing on the rocks below. The horsedrawn tram was something from the past but good.

Arrived early and were allowed to take pictures in the Penguin Hospital whilst waiting for the tour to start (No flash photography allowed). Not many wild Penguins came ashore (only two). The guide tracked up the cliff to their burrow using a red flash-light. Recommended.

Before the tour we walked around the island. Interesting but not spectacular.

On a clear day walking on jetty towards Granite Island is a refreshing postcard visual, ease of walking around island provides magnificent panoramic views with an attraction of wildlife & whales at the right time, great getaway.

one of the best things to do when you visit Victor Harbor is walk or purchase a ticket on the horse drawn transport to Granite. The tracks are good walking tracks and the views are magnificent. You may be lucky enough to see some little penguins.
