Glenelg

Glenelg

Glenelg is Adelaide's most popular beach destination. It's always buzzing with people enjoying the sand and sea, foreshore parks and summer entertainment. Stroll along the jetty. Browse through the hundreds of shops and dining at sidewalk cafes along Jetty Road. Moseley Square, where Jetty Road meets the beach, is the terminus for the City-to-Bay Tram. Recently upgraded to new trams, the original trams operate during holidays and are synonymous with Glenelg, having operated for over 70 years and used and adored by residents, commuters, shoppers and visitors. Nearby Holdfast Shores Marina is the base for Temptation Sailing's dolphin cruises.

The Bay Discovery Centre at Glenelg Town Hall tracks the history of Holdfast Bay and its evolution into today's seaside lifestyle. Stroll along Jetty Road's shops, cafes and restaurants. Visit the Bay Discovery Centre, Holdfast Shores Marina and picnic at Kingston Park Coastal Reserve. Walk the Federation and Proclamation Trails. Five kilometres south along the Esplanade, is the seaside hamlet of Brighton, also a favourite beach playground, with a delightful village atmosphere along its own Jetty Road. At Kingston Park, Kingston House is the oldest building in Holdfast Bay, built in 1840 and set on a three-acre reserve with stunning coastal views. On the foreshore, a striking monument by South Australia sculptor John Dowie marks one of the significant spring sites on the Tjilbruke Trail and a wheelchair-friendly boardwalk heads south to Marino Rocks.
