Victor Harbor, South Australia

Victor Harbor, Fleurieu Peninsula

Victor Harbor is South Australia’s
premier seaside tourist resort town on the Fleurieu Peninsula. It is only 84 kms south of Adelaide city, the State capital, located on the southern surf coastline of Australia. It has a permanent population of about 12,000 residents which during summer and holiday periods more than trebles. It was founded in 1837 as a sealing and whaling station which ceased operation in 1867. Many historical buildings of this period remain preserved. The history buff will enjoy the ambiance of the area. There is so much to see and do at Victor Harbor.

The big attraction is the Great Southern Ocean and its blue waters that disappear on the horizon only to find land again some 4000 kms south on frigid Antarctic shores.
