In Victor Harbor, you'll find a quaint yet exciting town along the southern coast of the Fleurieu Peninsula. It's the most popular town on the peninsula, as more and more travellers flock to its shores each year for a holiday. Whether you're interested in fishing, swimming or taking a ride on a horse-drawn tram, Victor Harbor has much to offer all sorts of travellers. Just make sure you bring your umbrella if you're travelling during the winter months. Summer travellers can enjoy notably cooler temperatures compared with nearby destinations like Adelaide.
Where to book Victor Harbor holiday rentals
You can enjoy everything Victor Harbor has to offer no matter where you book your stay, but it's always a better idea to orient your holiday rental around the attractions you want to see the most. For example, you may be more interested in booking a rental by the shore where you'll have easy access to Granite Island, while other travellers may be more interested in fishing and walking along the Inman River. Of course, the beach is always a popular destination as well.
Finding Victor Harbor accommodation near Granite Island
Just off the shore of Victor Harbor, you'll find the small landmass of Granite Island. Despite it being disconnected from the mainland, there is a causeway that allows easy access from town. In fact, accessing Granite Island is part of the adventure, as the tram that travels along the causeway is uniquely horse-drawn. Once you're on the island, you can see a variety of wildlife including little penguins, the smallest penguin species in the world. Booking Victor Harbor accommodation near the causeway makes it easy to access Granite Island. Nearby rentals tend to be fairly spacious with 2- and 3-bedroom layouts being the most common. Balconies are also common, so you can stand outside and gaze out into the expansive water.
Booking a Victor Harbor holiday house by the river
Throughout Victor Harbor, you'll find two main rivers. The Inman River is situated on the western side of town, while the Hindmarsh River runs along the eastern boundary. Both can offer a satisfying holiday experience, but the activities around each can vary quite a bit. The Inman River is best suited for fishing and features a picturesque walking path along its banks. The Hindmarsh River, on the other hand, is better suited for venturing into the water for activities like kayaking. The Hindmarsh River also leads to a beach where you can enjoy sandy shores and sparkling blue waters. A Victor Harbor holiday house by either river tends to have balconies and large windows facing the water for scenic views. Some may even have paths that can take you directly to the riverwalk or beach depending on which side you book your stay.
