Welcome to Victor Harbor
The biggest town on the Encounter Coast is Victor Harbor (yes, that's the correct spelling: blame one of SA's poorly schooled early Surveyor Generals). It's a raggedy, brawling holiday destination with three huge pubs and migrating whales offshore. It's a handy spot to stay if you're exploring the Encounter Coast, but comes up a little short on urban virtues. Still, the locals seem to love it: 'Another day in paradise,' says a pony tailed pensioner to no-one in particular, as he shuffles along Ocean St in the sun.
