Never seen a Steam Train? Get on The Cockle Train from Goolwa to Victor Harbor. Named after the cockles that were collected along the beaches by residents that took a horse drawn train to Goolwa, this steam train travels on the railway built back in 1887.
The journey from Goolwa to Victor Harbor takes 30 minutes and runs from the Goolwa base to the Encounter Bay coast and Port Elliot. There is a small museum at the Port Elliot station for those interested. As the train leaves Port Elliot you can take in the stunning ocean view along the coastline of the Fleurieu Peninsula before reaching Victor Harbor. (The seats with the best view of the coastline are on the left side of the train when heading from Goolwa.)
