Granville Harbour is located 17.48 km northwest of Trial Harbour, 26.16 km west of Zeehan and 89.31 km south of Arthur River, in the state of Tasmania.[1][2][3][4]

It lies north along the west coast, from the Heemskirk Wind Farm [5][6]

Granville Harbour was originally opened up as a soldier settlement after World War I,[7] and also had development proposals after World War II as well [8]

Archaeological research has also been conducted on aboriginal middens on the coast between the Trial and Granville area [9]

The area has been a popular fishing destination for locals and a holiday destination for miners from both Queenstown and Zeehan.
