Situated just one hour from Adelaide, Victor Harbor is a town with a rich and fascinating history.

It is situated between the entrance to Hindmarsh Valley with it's rolling hills and the wooded slopes of the Mt Lofty Ranges, and the beautiful beaches and rugged coastline of the southern Fleurieu Peninsula.

Victor Harbor is the ideal retirement destination. It would be difficult to think of any cultural or sporting interest, resource, or leisure activity that is not catered for.

Here are some of the community activities and opportunities as listed annually in the Community Guide, published by the local newspaper- The Times.
