Victor Harbor is a lively coastal town gracing the Encounter Bay in Fleurieu Peninsula, Southern Australia. Replete with adventure and beach sports, golf courses and a yacht club, this former whaling town is a popular summer haunt for locals. The historic Ocean Street precinct features heritage-listed colonial buildings including the popular Victa Cinema, adorned with blue plaques. Several coastal hikes, especially along Waitpinga Cliffs, and bike trails from The Bluff, offer fantastic scenery. Encounter Bay Marine Park’s Whale Trail gives a superb insight into the vibrant coastal environment. Experience the SteamRanger Cockle Train, which runs between neighboring towns, or the Clydesdale horse-drawn causeway tram that connects the mainland to Granite Island. Sculptures of the Sea is a collection of public installations by South Australian artists showcased across the island, which is also home to resident Little Penguins. Several small islands including the West Island and Seal Island dot the waterscape. Biplane and gyroplane flights allow you to best enjoy Victor Harbor from the sky!
