Along with Granite Island just off the coast, The Bluff is the most prominent natural feature of the Victor Harbor and Encounter Bay area.
At the base of the this hill there is a narrow dirt road leading to a fishing jetty.
This jetty is very popular with locals and visitors alike, and is one spot where fishing can be plentiful.
There are many spectacular views of beaches and the ocean in and around Victor Harbor on the south coast of South Australia.
My friend Rod took us on a tour of some of the highlights on a recent visit to the popular seaside town.
These photos were taken on the south side of the prominent hill know as The Bluff.
The Bluff is a prominent feature of the seascape at Victor Harbor on the south coast of South Australia. It is on the edge of the seaside town of Victor Harbor which is about an hour’s drive from the state capital, Adelaide.
The Bluff is a rocky outcrop of granite jutting into the skyline to the south west of the town. There are several walking trails to the top but these can be demanding to the unfit person. There is a road to the top and excellent views can be seen from the lookout, including of Victor Harbor, Encounter Bay, Granite Island and the Southern Ocean stretching to Antarctica.
At the base of the steep hillside there is a small parking area and a spot where there is excellent fishing from a jetty. In the photo above you can just make out several cars and the jetty on the lower right hand side of the photo (click on the photo to enlarge the image).
