Plan The Ultimate Coastal Holiday

For the ultimate family holiday, you really can’t go past staying in one of Victor Harbor’s caravan parks, they’re all focused on keeping the whole family entertained and are centrally located with the Victor Central Shopping Centre and the main shopping precinct of Ocean Street a mere kilometre away. You will love your stay at the NRMA Victor Harbor Beachfront Holiday Park just a hop, skip, and jump from the ocean.

This beachfront holiday park includes all the kid’s favourites with a water park, heated swimming pool, pump track, and jumping pillow. Plus, your fur babies are welcome all year too!

Stay at the Victor Harbor Holiday and Cabin Park and you’ve got a fun-filled holiday in the vicinity of the caravan park. With a playground, waterpark, and swimming pool plus a bump track and mini golf, the kids are sure to sleep well in your choice of accommodation whether it be your own tent or caravan or one of the park’s cabins. While the kids keep busy you can relax, cook up a storm in the camp kitchen or one of the BBQs, or simply sit by the pool and watch the kids make memories.

Explore your surroundings, get your bearings, and make your way towards Encounter Bay on a 4.8km easy cycle along the foreshore of Victor Harbor. Stop for a play at the playground at Muwerang – Kent Reserve. A wonderful meeting place for locals and visitors alike, this is also a historical sacred ground for the First Nations local Ngarrindjeri and Raminjeri people.

Continue along the picturesque Franklin Parade admiring the pristine water view to your left and the beachfront homes to your right.

Peckish? Stop at the local favourite Yilki Store for some of their famous hot chips before continuing towards The Bluff. From the base of The Bluff, it is possible to ride around the base along the dirt track to the end where local fishermen gather to catch the fish of the day. If you’re feeling energetic why not walk up to the top of The Bluff and enjoy sweeping 360-degree views from Victor Harbor through to Waitpinga.

Take a leisurely bike ride along the Encounter Bikeway towards Victor Harbor. Pull up at the Causeway Café for a coffee before boarding the Horse Drawn Tram (operational from 10.30 am each day. Trams run every 40-45mins through to the last tram of the day at 3.20 pm) over to Granite Island (Kaike in Ngarrindjeri) for a 1.9km lap around the island. Walk or catch the tram back over the Causeway to Victor Harbor.

After you make the walk or horse tram across The Causeway, why not enjoy fish and chips on the grass at Warland Reserve and watch the world go by before you set off on your Big Duck Seal Island Tour from the Causeway (45 mins, departs 1 pm). Other than spectacular scenery, if you’re lucky you’ll see fur seals, sea lions, sea birds, dolphins, and season permitting, whales! Take a short leisurely cycle back to the holiday park for an afternoon of play, exploring, and relaxing.

Before you say farewell to beautiful Victor Harbor, pay a visit to Urrimbirra Wildlife Park (open 10 am-4 pm every day, 10 Welch Road, Victor Harbor). This open-range park is a wonderful opportunity to get up close and personal with kangaroos, koalas, emus, wombats, and birdlife. Hand feed kangaroos, cuddle a koala, or handle a snake!
