Planning Your Visit
A suburb of Adelaide, Glenelg is only around a 25-minute tram ride from the city centre and about a 10-minute drive from Adelaide Airport. When it comes to accommodation, Glenelg has plenty of options though properties beside or close to the beach are ideal.
The Main ‘Star’
Glenelg Beach is perfect for fun family time, strolls with that special someone or for time by yourself too. Properties the likes of Oaks Plaza Pier can be found right along the shoreline and things to do include snorkelling, surfing, having BBQs as well as enjoying entertainment at the Glenelg Foreshore playground.
There are trails for walking and cycling in and around the coastline which provide an ideal way to experience the spectacular natural beauty and heritage of Glenelg. Be it ancient sand dunes, colonial buildings, the Tjilbruke Spring or Kingston House, there is much to see on your adventures.
Jetty Road Precinct
Within easy reach of the beach is the Jetty Road Precinct, a great place to beat the heat, get in some retail therapy and dine at local restaurants too. There are several galleries for art lovers to visit, while the cafes and bars provide perfect spots to enjoy drinks with friends and family at the end of a remarkable day in Glenelg.
