Do you want to see an arts and culture centre in Victor Harbor?

Residents, visitors and businesses are encouraged to provide feedback on concept plans for an arts and culture centre in Victor Harbor’s town centre.

The proposed Coral Street Arts and Culture Centre will be a hub for Victor Harbor’s flourishing cultural and artistic activity. It involves the redevelopment of the State heritage listed Town Hall and Old Library buildings on Coral Street in Victor Harbor’s Mainstreet Precinct. The concept shows the existing heritage and design character of each building is retained, while creating a contemporary community-focussed arts and culture facility.

View the concept plan online at and share your thoughts with the City of Victor Harbor before 5pm on Friday, 16 February 2018.

Hard copy information is available at the City of Victor Harbor Civic Centre, 1 Bay Road, Victor Harbor. Further questions can be directed to (08) 8551 0500.

World class cyclists will be looping around Victor Harbor three times when the Tour Down Under comes to town on Thursday, 18 January 2018.

The City of Victor Harbor is thrilled that race organisers have retained the 13km finishing circuit that loops around Victor Harbor three times before finishing on The Esplanade opposite Warland Reserve.

The pro cyclists are expected to arrive in Victor Harbor around 1.30pm before commencing the three loops and finishing on The Esplanade (opposite Warland Reserve) around 3pm.

To ensure the safety of riders, spectators and motorists, a number of road closures will be in place for the event and traffic congestion is expected. Find out more about the race route and road closures.

Sharing the Encounter Bikeway

Experience the Encounter Bikeway

The Encounter Bikeway winds along the spectacular coastline between Victor Harbor and Goolwa.

Catering for all ages and levels of fitness, the Encounter Bikeway is a great way to take in breathtaking coastal views and experience charming coastal towns.

The bikeway is popular with locals and visitors. It is used by cyclists, walkers, skaters, rollerbladers and wheelchairs.

Over summer there is an increased number of people enjoying the bikeway. This means users need to take extra care to ensure their own safety and the safety of others.

The City of Victor Harbor reminds users to keep to the left and be aware of safety in respect to other users of the bikeway. Cyclists should use their bell when approaching others from behind.

Visit local Visitor Information Centres for more information on the bikeway or to pick up a map to plan your journey or visit
