Reasons to visit

Victor Harbour is a town on the southern coast of South Australia's picturesque Fleurieu Peninsula.

While fine food and wine are plentiful and within easy reach, local restaurants Harbar, Emerald, Nino's and Anchorage Café are also very well regarded.

Explore the numerous sandy beaches, wander the clifftop trails, cycle along the coast or explore the reefs and islands of Encounter Bay. Take a boat tour for a spot of whale watching and see seals, dolphins and pelicans plus little penguins on Granite Island.

On the peninsula, see historic Strathalbyn, drop into the paddle steamer town of Goolwa, try a few cellar doors in the Adelaide Hills or check out the galleries on the Fleurieu Peninsula Art Trail. Or ride a horse, scuba on a wreck and have a surf.

Kangaroo Island is just a ferry ride away Cape Jervis and is a must-do addition to your holiday in Victor Harbour.

A local's top tips

Andrew Williamson, Owner, Victor Harbor IGA

"This is a great area to be a part of. One of our specialities is cheese and we have the best range in the area, including Alexandrina Cheese Company and their excellent Mount Jagged range and Onkaparinga cheeses – the triple cream brie is my favourite. 

We also carry local producers such as Fleurieu Milk and Yoghurt Company, Tweedvale Milk, local olives, Thomas Farm lamb from Murray Bridge and a great range of fish from Kangaroo Island.

We stock a lot of Barossa Valley product too, including Barossa Fine Foods' smallgoods such as bung fritz, mettwurst and ham and we get cherries from the Adelaide Hills when we can."
