Trams travel from the entertainment Centre, though North Terrace and King William Street all the way to Glenelg. Trams are comfortable and frequent.

We were stopping at the Hilton in Victoria Square so the tram stop is right outside the hotel. It is an extremely convenient way to get to Glenelg and other parts of Adelaide but one draw back is the ticketing system insomuch that as a new visitor you have to quickly assimulate your self with either having sufficient loose change...

For around £5 return this is a cheap days entertainment and a chance to visit the lovely beaches in and around Glenelg. Some easy walking along well maintained paths for some refreshing sea air.

Rode the tram from Adelaide city centre to Glenelg and back. The ride was relaxing. Not much scenery to see as it runs through residential areas.

30 min tram to Glenelg, great half day or couple of hours. 4 ice cream shops & 4 coffee shops within 20m tram end stop. Only 1 shop sold salad, my gluten free option, but loads noodle box & pizza shops. Fashion boutiques a plenty, quite pricey so came home empty handed. One block back is Ferris wheel & amusement...

We had a few hours to kill prior to our departure, so we got the tram from Adelaide CBD to Glenelg. $5.20 return. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Adelaide

Our day trip to Glenelg on the tram was a very enjoyable day. The weather was gorgeous. The trams are very frequent and on-time. Just find the whole process of getting the tickets a bit confusing but the locals were helpful. Costs about £3.50 return each. Just remember to validate when you get on going and coming back. The tram... More

You can go in the bus which takes longer so why not go in the tram which takes around half hour? at a cost of only $3.20 which is actually inclusive of return if you validate your ticket back on the tram within two hours of validating your ticket on from where you first got on. This means you'd get... More
