Victor Harbor

South Australia Accommodation and Information

 Accommodation

Victor Harbor is a town in South Australia on the south coast of the Fleurieu Peninsula, about 80 km south of the centre of Adelaide. The city is the largest population centre on the peninsula, with an economy based upon agriculture, fisheries and various industries. It is also a highly popular tourist destination, with the city's population greatly expanded during the summer holidays, usually by Adelaide

 

The Victor Harbor Horse Drawn Tram is located in the City. The tramway links the visitor information centre in downtown Victor Harbor with the nearby Granite Island, running for half of its route over a viaduct or pier, locally described as a causeway.

It is one of the very few horse-drawn tram routes remaining in public transit service anywhere in the world, and provides service every day throughout the year. There are four tramcars, each hauled by one of eight Clydesdale horses
