Spent and enjoyable couple of hours walking round Granite Island. Stunning views and plenty of wildlife. Access via the horse drawn tram during the day, but a pleasant walk to see the sunrise in the morning

Loved the opportunity to walk out and around this interesting island. The paths are easy to navigate around, with lots of lookouts . The only disappointment was the unused building that looked unkept and the poor excuse for a coffee shop on the island.

We enjoyed a quick walking tour of this island in the middle of a Saturday. There's also some fun public art on this island and quite the view of the southern waters.

It was a easy walk from the town centre. The views were breathtaking and the sculptures were fun and interesting. The added bonus was we saw some penguins.

We caught the horse drawn tram over to the island, you can walk around on the boardwalks and get a good look out for whales, there is quite a bit of history to read about and you may even see the penguins as we did...More

I'm afraid not - dogs and cats are prohibited - there are even spot fines for anyone who misses/ignores the signs. Walk out to the Bluff instead just along the coast a bit at Encounter Bay
