Rode over to island on horse drawn carriage which was a real highlight. For the adventurous I would recommend the walk around the island. The day we were there school children were doing it so it is easy. Great views from island as well.

Nice little island, don't order the gourmet toasted sandwich from the cafe. Didn't get baby spinach in it. Only a couple slices of ham, few sun dried tomatoes and some ricotta on white bread. Not worth it.

Have not had a walk around the island for ages. Not since its 'additions'. Lovely clean walks, fabulous views in every direction. Hideous sculptures randomly placed in apparently meaningless positions doing zero for the islands natural beauty and atmosphere. Derelict old restaurant area that is an appalling waste of a venue for tourists. Whoever is responsible for these atrocities on a fantastic piece of natural beauty and history would know the appropriate course of action to take...

We took the tramway option. Despite the strong wind we enjoyed the ride over the causeway. The view from the navigation light was great and well worth the climb up the well made stairs.

The natural beauty of this island is spectacular. Great attention has been given to preserving the environment with good paths and information regarding the various landmarks as you walk around the island. Many tourists from overseas, interstate and intrastate visit this island by tram or walking across the causeway. A sign at the beginning promotes a cafe/ restaurant and souvenir shop. However this has been closed for 3 years, only the toilet s are still open.

Easy 1.5km walk around the island. If you don't take the horse drawn tram this extends to 2.7km return from the start of the jetty. Not a great deal to see but nice views out to sea and back to Victor Harbor and the wider coast, with a few sculptures along the way. There are toilets and a cafe on the island. There were no sign of any penguins during the daytime.

Got on that tram at Victor Harbour and the Clydesdale horse slowly took us over to the Granite Island. I just loved that nice laid back feeling you get when you are sitting there with nothing more to do than just enjoy your day. The clip clop of the horses hoofs added ambience to a perfect day. The horse manager informed me that a person could pull the tram with ease and the horse did it with little or no effort, I did notice a whip behind the managers seat which gave me a moment for thought though, I listened to the manager speak lovingly to the horse as we crossed the bridge to the island so I was glad they had a bond. Thanks so much I really enjoyed the ride :)

Enjoyed the trip to to the island by the tram - it was a bit cold but worth a look around. The sea was doing a bit of trying to smash the island into dust without too much effect - but quite spectacular. Great views from the top and we saw a pod of dolphins enjoying themselves nearby. Worth a visit
