The Horse Drawn Tram

I was recently chatting with a friend who is off on a holiday. They’ll be in the area of the horse drawn tram! It seems that in Victor Harbor, South Australia, there is a tram that is pulled by a draught horse, across a bridge to a particular nature reserve. In fact, this is the main way to get there!

What a unique idea! I am originally from South Australia and hadn’t realised this was about, although we often frequented Victor Harbor. My mother informs me it’s been around for ages and she remembers it as a girl. My father indicated for awhile it was pulled by a tractor to take people across. Perhaps this was why I didn’t pay attention to it as a young girl? I am sure the horse would have gained my interest!

You can travel along the causeway from seaside Victor Harbor over to Granite Island in the only horse-drawn tramway in Australia. I love this! You can check out the website for prices. I was surprised to note that you can even pay for an annual membership, which gives you unlimited free rides! As it says on their website:

“The tram travels across the 630 metre causeway throughout the day taking passengers to picturesque Granite Island. Approximately 100,000 visitors annually enjoy this experience. It has carried more than 2 million passengers since 1986.
Commencing in 1894 by the South Australian Railways, the service attracts visitors from all parts of the globe. Whether it is the experience of travelling on heritage transport, travelling across the sea, going to the Island and experiencing the nature walks, the opportunity of seeing marine life in their environment or the joy of meeting one of our Clydesdales, the tram caters for all.”

You can find out all about the history of the tramway on their site, too!  And be sure to check out membership details 🙂
