ABC WEDNESDAY - Q is for Quaint
The Victor Harbor Horse Drawn Tram is located in the city of Victor Harbor, South Australia, Australia. The tramway runs for half of its route over a 630 metre wooden viaduct or pier, locally described as a causeway. It links the visitor information centre in downtown Victor Harbor with the nearby Granite Island recreation and nature park. It was built in 1867, and has offered passenger service since 1894 , to the present day. It is one of the very few horse-drawn tram routes remaining in public transit service anywhere in the world, and provides service every day throughout the year. There are four tramcars, each hauled by one of 8 Clydesdale horses.
