The Bluff, also known as Rosetta Head or Kongkengguwarr, is a much loved and iconic Victor Harbor landmark. It has significant environmental, recreation, tourism, heritage and cultural value. In recognition of this, the City of Victor Harbor, in association with Hatch, has developed a master plan that sets out a shared vision for this important asset.

The development of this master plan is both exciting and important. It provides us with a tool that will help us protect the things that our community most values about The Bluff at the same time as identifying opportunities to enhance this very special place in a way that reflects the shared community vision.

The plan is based on extensive consultation through which we heard the views, stories and opinions of around 900 voices. Through these conversations some clear themes emerged that really supported the idea of limiting development but implementing a number of enhancements that are sympathetic to the natural environment.

Things like making trails safer, providing more seating, defined spaces to take in the views and contemplate, looking at opportunities to share cultural stories and narrative, and re-wilding areas were just some of the common ideas.

The Bluff Master Plan was officially adopted by Council on 26 June 2023 and implementation is set to commence in 2023/24.

    After extensive community and stakeholder engagement, The Bluff Master Plan was adopted by Council on 26 June 2023.

    The plan will commence being used as a resource for guiding any actions, projects or activities within The Bluff Reserve. In terms of capital improvements, an initial allocation of $100,000 has been included within the Council's 2023/24 Annual Business Plan. It is expected that the first action will be the accessible viewing platform and rest stop (within Zone 3 of the Master Plan) that overlooks Petrel Cove and Kings Beach.
