Day 1 –
Take the horse drawn tram out to Granite Island. Enjoy the scenery as you head out to the island and if you are in the right season keep your eyes peeled for whales. Once on the island, you can follow the walking track the entire way around. There are signs along the way that are worth stopping and reading, all about the history and what you will find on the island. The walks are great for kids but a pram can be taken if need be. We suggest good comfortable walking shoes, hat and camera.
While you have your comfortable shoes on, we suggest heading to The Bluff. Once arriving at the first carpark, you will see the start of a walking trail. This is Rosetta trail and it takes you to the top of the hill. We do recommend kids be carried for most of this track as it can be steep and also consists of slippery gravel. The views the entire way are just spectacular and grabbing a photo standing on the large boulders at the top is very satisfying.
Day 2 –
A whole day is needed to see Deep Creek. You will need a National Park pass, about $10 (at time of publish) and available online HERE. Start the day by heading to Deep Creek Falls. Taking about 2 hours to complete, the walk is great. Providing you have a 4WD head towards Blowhole Beach. This is a steep but easy track and there is another great walk with amazing views once down the bottom. We also recommend driving to check out Ingalalla Falls while in the area, just a short drive from Deep Creek.
Day 3 –
We have added a day 3 simply because the Fluerieu Peninsula is absolutely stunning. Most people choose to stay somewhere along the coastline, but for those who don’t we do strongly suggest spending the day driving from Normanville down to Cape Jervis then back to Victor Harbor. Standout spots for us along the way are Second Valley. Park your car at the main beach car park, walk towards the jetty and you will see a narrow path along the cliff wall, follow this avoiding the crashing waves and go exploring for a hidden cave and nooks.
Rapid bay: also filled with caves and hidden nooks, this beach is beautiful in colour and sights.
There are many spots to turn off and explore along this coastline, everyone will drive it differently and see different things, don’t be afraid to turn off to find a spot.
