The 1.9km walk around Granite Island is a great way for people, including families with children and strollers, to discover the island.

Begin the walk in Victor Harbor, by crossing the causeway. Horse drawn trams operate across the causeway, providing a new experience for children.

The trailhead is on the island, just after the causeway reaches the island.

Discover more about the wildlife, geology and history of the island with the interpretive signs along the trail. Explore granite boulders including Umbrella Rock, and take in the views of Encounter Bay, the Bluff, islands and whales.

  • Causeway 700 metres one way
  • Kaiki Walk 1.9km loop

For parents with prams we suggest walking anti-clockwise, which is to turn sharp right after leaving the the causeway. There is a long flight of steps at the other end of the trail, but this is easily avoided by taking the shortcut gravel ramped path from the top of the island. There are no other steps on the circuit trail. The trail may be too steep for some people using prams and it may be easier to return via the way you came.

The causeway and road to the kiosk is accessible to people using wheelchairs and prams.
A review on PushAdventures.com.au discusses using the trail around the island.
