Granite Island - Cities, Towns and Localities
In 1860 a rail link between Victor Harbor with Adelaide was commenced. 1864 saw the opening of Victor Harbor jetty and tramway from Goolwa. The jetty was extended to Granite Island in 1872, and the breakwater off the island was completed in 1882.

Today you can still stroll or ride the horse tram across the 600 m wooden causeway to Granite Island (sometimes referred to as ‘Penguin Island’ after the Fairy Penguins that live on the island). There are scenic walking trails pass fascinating rock formations and great whale-watch lookouts.

Check out our listing of Victor Harbor accommodation. In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
