McCracken is perfectly situated for embracing coastal views, soaking up the resort lifestyle, or simply appreciating a quiet afternoon of relaxation and reflection.
A small coastal locality nestled in between Victor Harbor and Hayborough, McCracken lies perched on the hill overlooking the Southern Ocean and Encounter Bay. It’s the perfect playground for adults and golf enthusiasts. McCracken Country Club is an oasis of greenery along the coast, brimming with activities and delicious dining options. Sip on a glass of the region’s best wine or have a bite at the Country Club while enjoying the view over the rolling green hills of the golf course.
Things to do in McCracken & Hayborough
Play a round on the championship 18-hole golf course as you take in the picturesque McCracken Estate and enjoy the light coastal breeze. This course offers a variety of challenges, with undulating hills, ponds, green fairways, and manicured lawns.
If one day of golf isn’t enough, visit the resort on the property for a night or two, where rooms offer panoramic views of the sun-dappled Hindmarsh Valley and its surrounds. Rest your weary legs at the indoor pool, spa, and sauna. Then, sweat it out during a rejuvenating sunrise session in the health club or a friendly tennis match with the family.
If you run out of things to do at McCracken Country Club, nature lovers can find plenty to interest them if they’re willing to venture beyond the resort.
At the Lagoon Trail, a flat boardwalk winds its way through paperbark woodland in the nearby river estuary. The Hindmarsh River Walk is located in the same area, but makes up part of a longer circuit, winding its way past the beach through the estuary and around flood plains and sand dunes. Keep an eye out for the local birdlife and listen for the sound of frogs croaking amongst the undergrowth.
McCracken is the perfect place for families, friends, or couples to kick back and relax. It’s also ideally situated as a base if you want to spend time traversing the surrounding Hindmarsh Valley, taking a trip to Granite Island, or exploring the other historic towns and natural wonders as you make your way along the picturesque coastline.
