Where to stay on your next Victor Harbor holiday

by Physio Adelaide on August 13, 2011

Victor Harbor is a township found on the seacoast of the Fleurieu Peninsula, about eighty kilometres south of Adelaide, South Australia.  Victor Harbor is considered the largest population center in the Fleurieu , with an overall economy based mostly on farming, fisheries and several other industries. Victor Harbor is also a really popular holidaymaker place, with the city’s populace dramatically expanded at the time of the summer season and school holiday season.


Granite Island is a common site for tourists. It is is joined to the mainland by a short tram / pedestrian causeway. The tram service is operated by the Victor Harbour Horse Drawn Tram, one of the very very few horse-drawn tram passages remaining in public transportation . Granite island is home to a big colony of Fairy Penguins which are a well-liked attraction on the isle. These types of penguins shelter on the isle during the night time, departing in the daybreak to seek out for fish prior to returning at sundown.


The Cockle Train heritage railway controlled by SteamRanger operates steam train engine and other classic train services between Victor Harbor and Goolwa stations. This rail way includes the oldest rail route in Australia, between Port Elliot and Goolwa.


During the months of June to September, whale watching is a well known attraction. Southern Right Whales arrive to the close by waters to calve and to mate. The South Australian Whale Centre located at Victor Harbour gives hands on fun activities and presentations as well as facts and whale watching tips.


Greenhills Adventure Park gives fun-based activities including: water slides, canoing, rock wall mountaineering, archery, mini golf, and go-karting.


Victor Harbour is the hub of the surf area known as the “South Coast” to Adelaide and local surfers. Well-liked surf beaches in the area include Parsons, Waitpinga, Middleton and Goolwa.


Victor Harbour also offers numerous day fishing options varying from off shore reefs for larger boat based anglers to excellent surf-fishing on the beaches closer to the Murray Mouth.


Victor Harbour hosts a about three day Schoolies Week festival in late November largely for South Australian school leavers. Victor Harbor hosts the second largest Schoolies Week Festival after the Gold Coast. The centre of the town is a dry zone and hosts a number of live music and other events .
