The last whale was caught off Port Victor in 1872. The town's name was changed to 'Victor Harbor' in 1921, as a result, it is said, of a near shipwreck blamed on confusion with Port Victoria in the Yorke Peninsula. Despite the fact that harbour is normally spelt with a u in modern Australian English, the name of the city is spelt Victor Harbor; 35°33ʹ0ʺS 138°37ʹ0ʺE)
