What you need to know

A popular island getaway for visitors to Victor Harbor, Granite Island is known for the wild colonies of adorable little penguins and southern right whales during migration season. Earning its name thanks to the giant granite boulders that populate the island, exploring this gem is a definite must when in the area. Reached via a short stroll over the historic wooden causeway or buy a ticket for the horse-drawn tram, Victor Harbor's accessibility simply adds to it being a must-see destination.

Offering incredible wildlife interactions and impressive coastal views, you can enjoy a walk along Kaiki Walk, throw in a line off the jetty or simply kick back and relax on this uncommercialised island. If you're looking to catch a glimpse of the migrating whales, the best time to visit is between June and October, whereas the warmer months are ideal for walking around the island, swimming and fishing.
