Granite Island is known for its wildlife, especially the adorable, little penguins that live on the shores of the island. As they are wild, their presence isn’t guaranteed, however, if you do happen to glimpse these gorgeous animals you won’t be disappointed.
The island is also a popular whale-watching destination during the humpback whale migration season. Be sure to bring your camera to capture the sight of whales breaching and tail slapping in the waters surrounding the island.
If you’re visiting during the warmer months, there are a number of exciting things to see and do including walking on the various trails, swimming off the beach and throwing in a line to catch a fish.
Access to Granite Island is via the Victor Harbor to Granite Island Causeway. You can walk on the causeway or take the Horse Drawn Tram. During severe weather the causeway may be closed.
