Beautiful holiday locations close to Adelaide

by Physio Adelaide on May 30, 2011

Victor Harbour is the town located on the shoreline of the Fleurieu Peninsula, about eighty kilometres to the south of Adelaide, South Australia.  Victor Harbor certainly is the biggest population centre in the Fleurieu , with an overall economy centered upon farming, fisheries and several other industries. Victor Harbour is also a very well-known holiday location, with the city’s residents greatly expanded through the summer season and school vacations.


Granite Island is a well known site for vacationers. It is is joined to the mainland by a short tram / pedestrian causeway. The tram is provided by the Victor Harbor Horse Drawn Tram, 1 of the quite very few horse-drawn tram tracks still left in open public transportation . Granite island is home to a significant colony of Fairy Penguins which are a common attraction on the isle. These kinds of penguins shelter on the isle through the nighttime, leaving behind in the morning hours to seek out for sea food prior to returning at sundown.


The Cockle Train heritage railway run by SteamRanger operates steam locomotive and other traditional train services between Victor Harbour and Goolwa rail stations. This rail way includes the oldest rail journey in Australia, between Port Elliot and Goolwa.

The South Australian Whale Centre located at Victor Harbor provides hands on active activities and presentations as well as important information and whale watching tips.
