Ready to Vacation in Victor Harbor? Here’s What You Must Know!

Victor Harbor is quite the large town over on the Encounter Coast of Australia. People who love the unique spelling of harbour in the Australian language are always quick to notice that this town has quite the different spelling within its name. While the name may look different than all the other harbours in the country, you won’t see anything else missing during your visit. Victor Harbor is a holiday destination, so it does have a touristy vibe. And while the main area lacks an urban feel, you won’t notice it when you are out exploring.

How to Get to Victor Harbor

It is possible to drive, fly, or take a bus or train to Victor Harbor. The closest airport is in Adelaide and that is approximately sixty-eight kilometers from the town. Driving can take a long time from cities like Sydney. The entire car ride can take about seventeen hours, which is why so many people choose to fly or take another mode of transportation. While an airplane will get you there much faster, you can at least sleep when you are on the train or bus.

Victor Harbor Holiday Accommodation Options

There are plenty of budget and luxury hotels in Victor Harbor, but those are not your only options when it comes to holiday accommodations. You can also choose to stay in a rental cabin, apartment, or house, so you can have the room you need during your visit.

Best Time of the Year to Visit Victor Harbor

The best time of the year to visit Victor Harbor is when the whales are migrating there. The whales arrive between the months of June and September. They mate and then calve before swimming away to other parts of the world for the rest of the year. The weather is cooler at this time of the year and it can be rainy, so you must be prepared and plan ahead.

Things to See and Do in and Around Victor Harbor

When you arrive at Victor Harbor, you will want to start your vacation with a stop at the SA Whale Centre. This center was created back in 1994 and it is filled with information about whales. This is an excellent way to see whales, especially if you are not in Victor Harbor during the migration period. There is also a Penguin Centre over on Granite Island, so you may want to venture over there if you love those animals too.

Hiking along the Victor Harbor Heritage Trail will have you going from Petrel Cove all the way to King’s Beach. The distance of the entire trail is about six kilometers. If you want to hike further, you can connect with the Heysen Trail. If you are not a fan of hiking, you can always bike along the Encounter Bikeway. This bike path is thirty kilometers long. You will pass numerous beaches, coves, and even ice cream stores along the way.

Taking a ride to Goolwa on a Cockle Train with the SteamRanger Heritage Railway is a must for those visiting Victor Harbor. This railway has been around since 1854. When you arrive in Goolwa, you can do a little shopping for handmade crafts before tasting local beer and whiskey at the Steam Exchange Brewery.

Incredible views of the entire town of Victor Harbor can be seen if you take the time to climb up the Bluff. While you can walk all the way up to the summit, you may want to consider parking at the carpark halfway up the mountain and making the steep climb from there instead.

Best Places to Eat and Drink in Victor Harbor

When you wake up in Victor Harbor for the first time, you are going to want to know where to go for an amazing cup of coffee. Qahwa Coffee Roasters Espresso Bar can be found over at the Foreshore. They roast their coffee beans in small batches, so your coffee will always taste as fresh as possible. You can grab your coffee every morning and then take a long walk on the beach while drinking it.

Beach House Café is where you will find the best pizza, while it is all about the fish and chips at the Original Victor Fish Shop. At the end of the day, you must do a wine tasting over at Bremerton Wines. They have many types of wines available and you are guaranteed to find a new favorite to take home with you.

This is everything you must know to have an amazing vacation in Victor Harbor. This town may not have as much to do as other towns in the country, but you will still be thrilled with how busy you can be every day you are there.
