Just in time for Christmas, the $43 million redevelopments of the iconic Granite Island Causeway have officially opened to the public. The re-opening of this Fleurieu Peninsula favourite has certainly come at a perfect time, and visitors and locals can now enjoy it for the summer. Whether it’s taking your interstate relatives to see the highly-anticipated upgrade or just enjoying the revamped causeway as a local, it is well worth the visit.

Granite Island Causeway officially re-opened to visitors on Wednesday morning. The re-opening also signals the return of the horse-drawn tram we know and love.

The new causeway showcases the artwork of five local Ngarrindjeri–Ramindjeri artists. The beautiful designs tell Dreaming stories that are significant to the Ngarrindjeri–Ramindjeri people.

But the massive redevelopment won’t end with the revamped causeway. Further work will be carried out in early 2022, including the construction of a new boat landing facility for the causeway. Parts of the original causeway will also be kept at Granite Island and mainland Victor Harbor and used as viewing platforms.


You can go and check out the new and improved Granite Island Causeway now. It’s a choice photography spot, so don’t forget to bring your camera.
