There were a lot of people around and there was a street concert going on when we got there. Glenelg is a beautiful beach and lots of restaurants for everyone. We had... More

Good attraction to do. Adelaide trams are free in Adelaide CBD, so great for tourists . Just 20 mins out to Glenelg. Nice walk along pier, interesting shops and cafes for all.

Lovely way to see a bit more of Adelaide and when I left a bag on the tram - it was found by the driver and kept safe until I realised I didn't have it.

Lovely to travel through the old suburbs and see the different houses on the way. Easy to get on and off and the locals helped with buying the tickets.

I always think of the Glenelg Tram as one of the "must dos" in Adelaide and it still is! I had been told that it wasn't the same now because the old heritage trams have been replaced. It wasn't the same. It was better. The Glenelg line has got very busy and the new trams are much more capable of... More

The tram runs very frequently, some parts of the line are free, but from Glenelg to the CBD in total it costs between $3 and $5.? depending if its peak or off peak. There's a confusing ticket machine on the tram, that only takes coins or credit card (not notes) so be prepared with lots of coins. The tram is... More

What a fabulous service. The tram in the CBD is free, it is wheelchair and pram friendly and runs every 15min. I wish more major cities would do this. Absolutely brilliant

My partner and i travel to glenelg from the city every week to dine and spend time on the beach. The tram runs every 20 minutes or so and is a quick and convenient way to travel between the entertainment center and glenelg. Travel is free between the entertainment center and south terrace 8n Adelaide

They should have express trams like trains if you are going to Glenelg. After you stop at every place it takes 40 minutes. It should only stop probably five major place.
