What You Can Expect
Your tour continues from Hahndorf, leaving the Adelaide Hills to head south to the historic port of Goolwa near the mouth of the Murray River. After enjoying the waterfront sights of Goolwa, Australia’s first inland port and an important link in the country’s sea and river trade, continue to Port Elliot to take in views along the southern coast en route to Victor Harbor.
If you’re taking this tour on Sunday or Wednesday, you’ll have the option of catching the heritage steam-powered Cockle Train from Goolwa to Victor Harbor (own expense).
At the former whaling and shipping port of Victor Harbor, you might like to take a stroll under the island’s Norfolk pines, follow boardwalk trails or relax by the jetty in this historic seaside town. Or, step aboard the historic, double-decker, horse-drawn tram (own expense) to cross the causeway over to Granite Island.
The return trip to Adelaide takes you through McLaren Vale, one of South Australia’s most celebrated wine regions. The tour stops on McLaren Vale’s main street, allowing you to visit wine and specialty stores where you can browse wines from local vineyards and regional goods such as chocolates and nuts, before continuing to Adelaide where you’ll be dropped at your hotel.
Great trip - bus driver informative and helpful. Was great seeing the contrasts of the area's landscape, so interesting! Hahndorf, nice town - shame visit not long enough. Victor Harbour, lovely - best fish and chips! Area so clean and tidy. Great sea views, shame no whales!
Very enjoyable and informative! The tour guide was competent and very friendly and courteous. The ride we did with the steam train to Victor Harbor was a delightful experience passing through several picturesque villages and the coastline, all breathtaking. Once again, Viator didn't disappoint us and we'll book again with your agency our forthcoming tours when it's again time for another family day... Thanks!
