Take the country's only horse-drawn tram out to Granite Island, once a whaling station but now a lovely park linked to the township of Victor Harbor by a wooden causeway. It's home to a colony of 700 or so Little Penguins. The tramway is open daily, 10am to 4pm, and a return trip costs A$7 for adults and A$5 for children; but it's a nice walk out along the causeway, as you'll often see fur seals lazily drifting underneath the piers. If you want to see the penguins, you'll need to join one of the evening guided tours run by the national parks and Wildlife Service. Just remember, penguins have right of way!
