Victor Harbor is a pleasant seaside town with many things to do and see. You will want to spend at least a day or two here. Here are some ideas for starters:
Ride the SteamRanger Cockle Train to Goolwa and back on the oldest public railway line in Australia. The stunning coastal views from the train are some of the best you will see in the world. It runs every Wednesday and Sunday and every day during school holidays.
Stroll across the causeway or ride the horse drawn tram to Granite Island. The walking trails around the island provide the chance to see bird life, Little Penguins and whales. The rugged coastal views back to the mainland are spectacular.
Cycle from Victor Harbor to Pt Elliott and on to Goolwa along the coastal cycle way. The bitumen path follows the coast and is a safe way to ride. The round trip is a pleasant 50km ride and is mostly flat going, or ride part of the way if you wish.
Wine and dine in many of the numerous small restaurants, cafe's and hotels in the town. Many serve local wines and produce, all of which are excellent.
Swim, surf or take a stroll along the beaches. Surf at Middleton or body surf at Boomer and Goolwa, or surf the big waves at Waitpinga and Parsons Beach.
Picnic or barbecue in some really pretty spots in the parks, along the foreshore or out toward The Bluff.
Enjoy the National Parks in the area, they are many and varied and all provide good walking trails and kayaking.
Get on to the Food & Wine trail and taste the local wines, cheeses and produce.
