Granite Island, Victor Harbor

These photo was taken at Granite Island is one of the most popular attractions at Victor harbor especially the penguin tour during dusk at night guided by a professional trained person to view the penguins after they come ashore after a days fishing.  Hubby and I had a penguin tour a couple of years ago at night together with a few tourist, sometimes it depends on the season also. That night we are lucky to see some penguins but hardly to spot them clearly because they're hiding on their burrow. It was a great experience we've been joining in a group of people being guided by the tour who shared all the scientific knowledge about penguin. Their natural habitats, interpretation of behaviors and adaptation of being a charismatic creatures.

At the end of the bridge you can first see the granite island sign


                                  
My hubby's photo on the big rocks located at the end right side of the bridge where you can see on the 3rd photo
                                  
A long bridge going to granite island, sometimes people ride on a horse tram to get through the island as it's a bit of long walk to reach the end side of the island where the penguin tour begins at night, I've posted this photo long time ago but this might help describe the place going to the Island.
