Fodor's Review

This island is linked to the mainland by a 650-yard causeway, along which Clydesdales pull a double-decker tram. Within Granite Island Nature Park a self-guided walk leads around the island, and guided walking tours to view the colony of about 500 fairy penguins are run from the penguin interpretive center. There is also an excellent restaurant (lunch only) with deck dining overlooking the harbor entrance. Look out for seals in the shallows.
