The horse drawn tram to Granite Island, Victor Harbor, South Australia.
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.
