Victor Harbour, South Australia


victor-harbour-sign

Following on from Glenelg and Fleurieu Peninsula we head into Victor Harbour where I find another great pier, well they call it a causeway bridge so technically NOT a pier but still wooden and loads of character.

Its 80kms south of Adelaide and situated on Encounter Bay. Great for surfingvictor-harbour-causeway-bridge, whale watching in the right season and its wildlife – seals and penguins.

Granite island is home to the little penguins which are protected and nurtured on the island. They fall prey to the fur seal who kill them for sport. Both animals can be found on the island and if you are patient enough you can do a dusk tour of the island looking for the little penguins as they return from the sea after a day out looking for food. You pity these poor little animals, they stay out all day to fish, come home to rest and start out early again the next morning. What hard little workers they are.

Victor Harbour sunrise SAWe stayed in a lovely old hotel, The Anchorage, with great hospitality and a comfortable room.  It was only a quick stop off for one night which meant one sunrise to catch a glimpse of the sun coming up over the water and the causeway bridge.  I wasn’t disappointed.

The causeway bridge has a tram track on it which takes visitors over to Granite Island.  In tourist times it has a horse drawn tram on it but unfortunately we did not get to see this sight or take a ride.  That would have been a lovely picture to take of the old tram with a lovely old Clydesdale horse pulling the tram.

So a whistle stop journey on our way up into the Barossa Valley.
