One of the more interesting walks in the town of Victor Harbor is around the estuary at the mouth of the Hindmarsh River where it enters the southern ocean at Harborough Beach.

Most of the attention is directed at the ecology of the estuary, even though some of the older beach architecture is aesthetically pleasing and deserves to be heritage listed. This kind of architectural work is experienced only from the outside as the interiors is closed to all—it is the “tourists’ gaze” view of architecture: the reception of architecture from an exterior point of view.
