Victor Harbor Horse Drawn Tram

Victor Harbor is 84km due south of Adelaide and situated at the head of Encounter Bay. The sea, beaches, spectacular views and wildlife make it a popular tourist attraction for visitors from overseas and interstate. The Victor Harbor Tramway operates from the mainland across the Causeway and around the northwest side of Granite Island. The Causeway is 630 metres long.

The office and stables are located at the entrance to the Causeway. The trams operate every day of the year. Passengers may choose a return trip, or ride across one way and walk the other.

The tramway is one of the very few horse-drawn tram routes remaining in public transit service anywhere in the world. It operates every day throughout the year except Christmas Day. Up to three double-decker tramcars are each hauled by a Clydesdale horse. The line is built to 5 ft 3 in (1,600 mm) broad gauge, as were many of the early railways of South Australia.
