Horsedrawn Tram

Ride the historic Horse Drawn Tram across The Causeway to Granite Island. The Tramway commenced operation in 1894 and is one of two remaining in the world that operate a daily service.

Meet our beautiful Clydesdales at their day yard and at the station for a great photo opportunity. Each of our six working horses share working shifts of four or five return trips each or approximately two and a half to three hours after which they are given a feed of chaff and grain then spend the time dozing under the pines or being petted by admirers.

You can learn some of the history of the Tramway, The Causeway and the region from the photo displays inside the trams. The replica trams were built in 1986, based on the original design, but extended by two windows and given extra headroom. They weigh 4.8 tonnes each and use roller bearings to minimise rolling effort. A single tram driver can roll one out of the barn on their own! A working Clydesdale weighs between 800 to 1000kg, but only needs to use 80kg of weight to start the tram rolling.

You may purchase a return ticket (return on any tram throughout the day) or ride oneway and make a leisurely stroll the other.

Climb the boardwalk stairs to the highest point on the island for spectacular views of Victor Harbor and Encounter Bay. Explore the scenery and many other vantage points on the walking trail around the island.

The Tramway operates every day, except for Christmas Day (weather permitting). Visit www.horsedrawntram.com.au for information about fares and running times.
