Encounter Coast Discovery Centre and The Old Customs and Station Masters House
At the Encounter Coast Discovery Centre, learn about the historic Australian meeting between English and French explorers Matthew Flinders and Nicolas Baudin in 1802.
Walk through the Discovery Centre to encounter stories of Victor Harbor and the sea. Discover some of the relics from the early whaling industry and unusual bottles found at the bottom of the bay.
Listen to the stories recalled by some of the early residents of Victor Harbor, Port Elliot and Goolwa - the local midwife, a merchant, a local boarding house keeper and others. Or gaze out to sea through the 'parlour window' of Mount Breckan, one of Victor Harbor's finest 19th century mansions.
Wander through to the Old Customs and Stationmaster’s Residence, which was built in 1866 and furnished in the style of the era.
