Victor Harbor - The Great Escape of South Australia

Robyn Pitman-Williams — 24 November 2022
Victor Harbor is the land of sunshine, wildlife, surf, picturesque scenery, and history.

The perfect winter and summer escape, the region has it all, and the Victor Harbor Beachfront Holiday Park is the perfect base for exploration.

Year-round adventure

Seeking a holiday that’s fun for the whole family? Look no further than the South Australian beachfront town of Victor Harbor. Nestled on the coast only 80km from Adelaide, the town has something to offer travellers of all ages and abilities.

Cool ocean breezes mean the town offers visitors respite from the harsh summer heat, with many seeking refuge in the region in the hotter months. Winter also offers excellent opportunities to enjoy all that Victor Harbor has to offer. Surfing, fishing, hiking, and whale watching are huge drawcards in the cooler months. 

A rich history

Located in the traditional lands of the Ramindjeri clan of the Ngarrindjeri people, Victor Harbor has a rich Indigenous and European history. 

The town was named after the HMS Victor, which anchored off Granite Island in 1837. Whaling was one of the region’s primary industries in this era. The sector died off in 1872, when the last recorded whale was caught. Whales and conservation continue to be part of Victor Harbor’s identity, with many flocking to see the large animals peacefully calve and frolic in nearby waters in mating season.

Prime location for relaxation and fun

The Victor Harbor Beachfront Holiday Park is in the prime position to offer all the exhilarating attractions for which the region is known. Located right on the beach, this tourist park offers relaxation to those seeking a lazy holiday, adventure for those chasing adrenaline rushes, and wildlife experiences for visitors wanting to get back to nature.

Everyone loves Victor Harbor, including wildlife lovers. The park is central to these experiences, including whale watching and the Urumbirra Wildlife Park, which features kangaroos, koalas, echidnas, lizards, snakes, and crocodiles. Granite Island offers a prime view of the Little Penguins, who can only be found in Australia and New Zealand.

Perfect for families, couples, and solo travellers, the park offers a variety of accommodation options depending on the style of holiday desired. Glamping, cabins, camping, caravans, and even a new safari tent precinct, the sky is the limit!
