Victor Harbour – Day Trip DestinationVisit website
Victor Harbor is located 80 kilometres, just under an hours drive, due south of Adelaide, South Australia. Victor Harbor is one of the most popular coastal playgrounds in South Australia and has been a favourite holiday destination with families since the late 1800s. The town overlooks the beautiful Encounter Bay with a coastline featuring the huge rock outcrop of The Bluff and the very popular Granite Island. The island is made special by having the world’s only daily Horse Drawn Tram service that began operating in 1886.
Many visitors travelling from the eastern states along the Great Ocean Road access Victor Harbor by crossing the Murray River at Wellington. The proximity to Kangaroo Island, to the River Port of Goolwa and to the Southern Wine Region makes this a choice location to base a holiday. Encounter Bay is blessed with a classic Mediterranean climate that makes Victor Harbor a great destination all year round
