About the Rediscover Granite Island initiative
The City of Victor Harbor's Rediscover Granite Island initiative is set to bring vibrancy and fun to this iconic destination.
Following the expiry of the Granite Island kiosk and cafe lease, the City of Victor Harbor has entered into a license agreement with the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources (DEWNR) to enable 'pop up' food vendors to operate on the island.
Council called for Expressions of Interest from vendors of food and fun in March and was pleased with the response. Following the call for EOI's, Council is please to announce that two talent Victor Harbor locals have been successful in their proposal to set up an exciting new food experience "Castaway - the Baker and the Chef in a Pura Vida Van".
We're still looking for fun activities
We are still looking for fun activities to run on the island over the next few months. If you have an idea, the City of Victor Harbor wants to hear it. Maybe you could run a children's activity, fitness class or get a local community organisation together to run a fundraising sausage sizzle.
To submit your idea (big or small), complete the application form and return it to the City of Victor Harbor attention to Vivienne Holloway.
