Granite Island Recreation Park

  • Children catered for
  • Disabled access

Take a short stroll or horse tram ride over the wooden causeway that connects the mainland at Victor Harbor to Granite Island Recreation Park. Victor Harbor is approximately 100 kilometres south of Adelaide.

The island is characterised by huge granite boulders tinged with orange lichen, with the sound of waves crashing against rocky shores - a stirring soundtrack to your visit.

Enjoy the coastal scenery and discover the island's interesting history along the Kaiki Walk or go fishing from the jetty, breakwater or causeway. You may even spot a southern right whale between June and October.

Park entry is free. The park is open daily from sunrise to sunset. The park may be closed on days of extreme fire danger.

Please note: wood fires and solid fuel fires are prohibited throughout the year. Gas fires are permitted other than on days of total fire ban.

The Penguin Interpretive Centre on Granite Island looks after sick and injured penguins and is especially popular with kids. Please phone for bookings or for information on opening hours.
