Go Kayaking

An unusual and fascinating way to see the Victor Harbor area is with a kayak tour. This is a brilliant way for the kids to soak up the amazing natural beauty of the area while doing something completely different. If you are always looking for new and interesting ways to keep the kids amused, then this is an option worth bearing in mind.

Wine and Dine

South Australia is well-known for high quality wines from the vineyards of McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley, Riverland and the Limestone Coast and the adults in the group are sure to want to try some while they are here. However, that doesn’t mean that the kids need to be left out. There are a number of family-friendly restaurants such as Beach House Café or Eat at Whalers in Victor Harbor where the grownups can sip some local wine while the young ones eat and have fun.

Catch of the Day

What could be better for a family adventure than a day’s fishing? Join a fishing trip on a boat, or throw a line over the edge of a jetty. Anyone who isn’t all that interested in the fishing can simply sit down and enjoy the amazing scenery, while the rest of the family can get to work trying to land the catch of the day.

Sign up for a Surf Lesson

Surfing is a great experience for all the family and the best surf schools, such as Surf & Sun, can cater for older learners and for youngsters as well. Who wouldn’t love to learn how to surf in a lovely setting on the Fleurieu Peninsula? Learning such a captivating sport together can be a wonderful bonding experience as well as a whole lot of fun.

Go Snorkelling

The Fleurieu Peninsula has excellent locations for snorkelling in general, while Victor Harbor is a good choice for family groups. The Bluff jetty is home to squid, crayfish and mullet and you may even spot a seal or the rare leafy sea dragon when snorkelling here.

Spend a day at a Family Attraction

What kid would turn down the chance of spending a few hours in an interesting amusement park or water park? There are some great options for getting on rides or splashing about in the water such as Greenhills Adventure Park while you are all here.
