Family Holidays in Victor Harbor

Take in the scenery of the Fleurieu Peninsula as you ride the rails. Children will also love riding the horse-drawn tram across to Granite Island. This historic 19th-century tram is pulled by giant Clydesdale horses which have delighted little ones and the young at heart for generations.
Another family favourite is the South Australian Whale Centre, which has a large number of interactive exhibits about the giants of the deep and the history of whaling in the area. A family holiday at Victor wouldn't be complete without a trip to the beach. There's some lovely stretches nearby, including those in town, split into east and west sections. Both these beaches are safe for swimming.

What to Do in Victor Harbor
Whale watching is one of Victor Harbor's key attractions. From May to October, southern right whales frequent the waters around the old whaling town and can easily be seen from the shore. The Encounter Marine Park is one of the best places in Australia to see these whales, specifically Basham Beach where female whales and their calves often come close to the shore.
There's plenty of other things to do when staying at a holiday rental in Victor Harbor. Head to Granite Island, a small island just offshore which houses a colony of fairy penguins. If you're lucky you may be able to spot these little birds during the day, but the best way to see them is on one of the night tours which are organised by the local wildlife authority. There's also some great opportunities for hikes in the area, including around Victor Harbor's famous Rosetta Head bluff, and the Heysen Trail that stretches all the way to Cape Jervis.
