Take a short stroll or horse tram ride over the wooden causeway that connects the mainland at Victor Harbor to Granite Island Recreation Park. Enjoy the coastal scenery and discover the island's interesting history along the Kaiki Walk or go fishing from the jetty, or causeway (no fishing from breakwater). You may even spot a southern right whale between June and October.

On the right day, like we had yesterday, this is a beautiful way to spend 2 lazy hours walking over the bridge and then around the island. Toilets and food is available. The track is for the average fitness, but take care with adventurous children,...More

Ample parking nearby, and we chose to walk across the causeway and follow the path around the island. Stunning views back to the mainland and out across the ocean. The pathway is a bit demanding - safe, but definitely not 'level'. Saw plenty of seabirds...More

We took the horse train to the island. Seemed to me to be a place that is just too quiet to run a business on the island. Everything was shut and looked in need of repair. This is a pity as in other states am...More

As far as Granite Islands go, this one was awful. The horse drawn tram was meh, the most exciting part was the death defying, definitely not WHS compliant stairs to get to the top level. It was a real, not sure if my child is...More

This is a short walk across the bridge to the island and about 1.5 kms around the perimeter. A little bit of wildlife, didn’t see any penguins and endured a very strong wind. The path is easy to follow and other than a few stairs,...More

Great easy walk over to the Island with scenic views all around. However the council have not spent any money on the fishing Jetty and kiosk for along time. There is only toilets on the island and no where to buy a drink or something...More

I'm afraid not - dogs and cats are prohibited - there are even spot fines for anyone who misses/ignores the signs. Walk out to the Bluff instead just along the coast a bit at Encounter Bay
