The Area: Victor Harbor, Adelaide
McCracken Country Club is an appropriate base for discovering nature and the surrounding areas. Known as the ‘South Coast’, this part of Australia is a playground for surfers and beach lovers. Nearby surf beaches include Parsons, Waitpinga, Middleton, and Goolwa as well as Granite Island which operates the only horse-drawn tram in Australia.
Perched on the edge of Adelaide’s serene coastline, the picturesque Victor Harbor derives an air of tranquillity from its natural surrounds. Boasting magnificent beaches and a rugged landscape dominated by Granite Island, the town is a popular spot for whale watching in wintertime when Southern Right Whales can be seen basking in Encounter Bay. The tranquil setting is also home to historic Adare Castle, and an ideal place to escape for a rejuvenating weekend out of the city.
