Victor HarborAbout the neighbourhood

Located on the coast of the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula, Victor Harbor is an adventure playground of sun, surf and sand, just under two hours from Adelaide. The heart of the well known ‘South Coast’ surfing region, the Ocean Crest Motel delivers the thrills of the beaches and coastline to your door.

Victor Harbor’s natural attractions lie predominantly on the coast from the excellent surf beaches of Parsons, Waitpinga, Middleton and Goolwa, to the famed geological formation known as The Bluff, or the nearby Granite Island. A trip to the Island is a must and is connected by a short causeway, which operates the only horse drawn tram in Australia.
