Plan The Ultimate Coastal Holiday
Get excited, because it’s time to go on holiday! But, before you hit the road, it’s worth checking out all the wonderful adventures you’ll have on your travels. Whether you’re planning an intimate getaway for two or a holiday for the whole family, Victor Harbor is just a short 60-minute drive south of Adelaide. If you’re taking the Southern Ocean Drive, gaze on the rugged beauty of the Fleurieu Peninsula in all its glory as you wind your way along the highway.
One day isn’t enough to take in all that the Victor Harbor region has to offer. Spend a few days exploring or add an extra week onto your holiday to give yourself time to truly disconnect. Take a detour from Kangaroo Island or the nearby McLaren Vale. Sleep under a million stars as you go off the grid at a chic eco cabin, or roll over in luxurious 1000 thread count sheets.
While you’re here, explore our curated itineraries to discover our local wonders. However you like to travel, Victor Harbor has something for you.

Wake up with the sounds of nature surrounding you and soak in those beautiful views at your own private hideaway. Mornings at Esca call for a soak in your private inset bath overlooking the hills, enjoying a freshly brewed coffee out of a beautiful cup and moving through your morning slowly.
