As one of South Australia’s most popular coastal playgrounds, the City of Victor Harbor [view on map] has been a favourite holiday destination with families since the late 1800s. With sun, surf and sand, clear turquoise waters and stunning views, outstanding early colonial architecture, and good pubs, cafés and restaurants it’s easy to understand why. At the same time, Victor Harbor has become one of the fastest growing local government areas in South Australia, maintaining a strong annual population growth rate over the past two decades. Growth of this nature demands continued investments in infrastructure and services and the City of Victor Harbor recently completed works for the upgrade of the Waitpinga Road / Battye Road intersection. Located approx. 5.5km SW of the town centre, the project increases safety for all travelers while supporting the growth in the Waitpinga area where residents overlook the spectacular Encounter Bay and Granite Island Conservation Park.
