The Victor Harbor district has many attributes not shared by other council districts in South Australia, including the scenic features of the Fleurieu Peninsula and the south coast. Located about one hour's driving time from metropolitan Adelaide, and having congenial climate and a distinctive character, the town of Victor Harbor is a very attractive destination for day-trippers, week-enders and holiday-makers alike. The urban area is also becoming a very popular place for retirement living.
The growing popularity of Victor Harbor has reinforced the traditional role of the town as the main urban centre servicing the south coast. The rural area includes much prime dairying country, particularly in the fertile river valleys. Sheep and cattle grazing occurs extensively throughout the district.
The scenic attraction of the rural areas, with associated features of interest, such as Hindmarsh Falls, the Spring Mount Conservation Park and the magnificent coastal scenery and beaches contribute to the overall attraction of Victor Harbor for tourists, recreational and retirement activities.
