A great area to wander in and look at everything around. This historical precinct. Great watching the big seals bobbing around waiting for the fishing boats.

It was great to walk around the harbour. A busy place in some respects, I suppose, but also so very serene and calming.

With family in Dunbar, we visit once or twice a year, and always visit Victoria Harbour. It's so photogenic, with boats, lobster pots, fishermen and nets, gulls etc. The new 'battery extension' to the quay gives added interest and history. I love this place.

Busy 'Quaint Little Harbour' with the odd seal popping its head up to see what's going on, major building work being carried out around the harbour when we were there and various parts sectioned off for work to be carried out. Look forward to going...More
