Visit Granite Island

Rug up in your winter woollies and visit Granite Island. Home to magical little fairy penguins, it’s an impressive spot to view the creatures, as well as take in the stunning surrounding landscapes. You can stop for coffee or a bite to eat and make a day of it! There are also guided penguin tours at dusk, where you are almost guaranteed to spot the penguins returning to shore after several days feeding at sea.

Swim with tuna at Oceanic Victor 

Even if it’s raining, you can indulge in an aquatic experience and swim with the bluefin tune. The Oceanic Victor is an underwater observatory where you can either feed the tuna from the viewing platform or get right up close and don a wetsuit and get in the water with the creatures.

Whale watching season has started with a bang in Victor Harbor with several whales being spotted weekly! Every year, thousands of visitors flock to the seaside city, hoping to catch a glimpse of the magnificent creatures. Boasting an incredible diversity of 30 different whale species, keep your eyes peeled because you are likely to spot the gentle giants in winter.
