Victor Harbor Horse Tram Authority

Price from $7

Overview

Take a ride on the only horse-drawn tramway in Australia, and one of the few services to run throughout the year worldwide. Magnificent Clydesdale horses draw you along the causeway from seaside Victor Harbor to Granite Island.

The tram travels across the 630 metre causeway throughout the day taking passengers to picturesque Granite Island. Approximately 100,000 visitors annually enjoy this experience. It has carried more than 2 million passengers since 1986.

Commencing in 1894 by the South Australian Railways, the service attracts visitors from all parts of the globe. Whether it is the experience of travelling on heritage transport, travelling across the sea, going to the Island and experiencing the nature walks, the opportunity of seeing marine life in their environment or the joy of meeting one of our Clydesdales, the tram caters for all.

Whilst on Granite Island climb the boardwalk stairs and follow the Kaiki Trail for spectacular views and scenery of Victor Harbor and Encounter Bay, from the many vantage points around the Island.

The Tramway operates every day, except for Christmas Day, from 11.00am until 3.00pm in off peak times and from 10.40pm-3.20pm on weekends and from 10am-4pm school Holidays and Public Holidays
