Glenelg itself is beautiful and definitely worth a trip. The tram ride itself is ...well.. a tram ride. Worth doing if you havent been on a tram before otherwise I wouldnt bother

This is a great way to get from the city to the beach, especially if you wish to sample the many bars and eateries along the foreshore without having to look for a park, feed the meter and worry about your breath alcohol level. Last time I rode the tram to Glenelg there was a three hour window that provided... More

This is the oldest tram still running in Adelaide. It takes you from the very centre of the city down to the nearest beach. It has recently been upgraded to more modern trams, although some of us still miss the old red 'rattlers' - drafts, discomfort and all. Glenelg beach is no longer a pristine beach, but it is a...

As grandparents of 8 ranging in age from 18 months to 16 years my husband and I often catch the bus which stops almost right out the front of our house to the Adelaide Entertainment centre or the train to the city centre and board the tram to Glenelg with any number of our grandchildren. All the kids love travelling... More

It is a great way to see some of Adelaide's Suburbs as you travel to one of Adelaide's iconic beaches. Glenelg is certainly a lovely seaside suburb. The tram stops in Glenelg Square from where the main street begins or ends depending on how you look at it ? Behind you there are many shops, cafes, restaurants and in front... More

The tram runs from Glenelg (a popular seaside suburb) right through the main part of the City and then onto the Entertainment Centre so it can be really useful if you are going shopping or sightseeing within Adelaide or even to the theatre. It stops within an easy walk of the Festival Theatre on King William or you can travel... More

If you come to Adelaide and want to try something different why not jump on the tram in the city and take it down to Glenelg, which takes you just in front of the beach where you can shop all day and eat great food. There is a large variety of food places, restaurants and bars plus the prestige's Grand... More
