We went to Victor harbor, stayed in a caravan park and absolutely loved it. We walked out to Granite Island and walked around it looking at beautiful views. We saw the horse drawn tram and what a lovely horse it was too.... it goes out to the island and is one of the few horse drawn trams remaining. Granite Island is home to a colony of little penguins which shelter on it at night, because the weather was cold and wet we did not go out to see them. There is the Cockle Train heritage railway operated by SteamRanger runs steam locomotive and other antique train services between Victor Harbor and Goolwa stations. This route includes the oldest rail route in Australia, between Port Elliot and Goolwa. During the months of June to September, whale spotting is a popular attraction. Southern Right Whales come to the nearby waters to calve and to mate. We saw seals however playing in the surf and I took a couple of photographs of them.
