Granite Island (coord|35|33|S|138|37|E|region:AU-SA_type:isle|display=inline,title) is a small island next to Victor Harbor, South Australia, not far from South Australia's Capital city, Adelaide. It is unpopulated, however there are buildings on the island.

The island is accessible across a causway from the mainland, either on foot or by catching an antique horse drawn tram.
