Loved the tram

We enjoyed our ride on the tram. Glenelg isn't somewhere I would return to in a hurry, but the tram ride was great.

There's not much to say about the tram thats negative - it is timely, efficient, clean, and now has the addition of free wifi. The route from Glenelg to the Entertainment Centre passes through major areas of Adelaide and it is a fantastic alternative to trying to find expensive parking in town. Parking off King William Road or Goodwood Road... More

Easy to catch and don't forget to get a ticket. Check out museum, shops and restaurants. Good for a morning, or get lunch. Go to the beach or check out restaurants at marina.

First time and somehow missed paying the fare! Excellent public transport to and from Glenelg, on time and very often, comfortable and quick and quiet.

Just a bit confusing working out the ticketing system, and that there are free stops in the city, but we managed. And it was worth it. Tram clean and efficient and Glenelg Beach wonderful.

Old, quaint and still rumbling along. It's worth the ride if you'd like to be nostalgic about tram travel if old - heat, cold, noise, the works

Took 3 grandchildren on tram to Glenelg in holidays. Had trouble working ticket system, and ended up buying 4 individual tickets on credit card at $1.30 I think each, could not see how to buy 4. Other travellers did not know when asked. Get your ticket before you get on , make it easier. Children found it mundane, whilst I... More

I really miss the old tram but still the ride from Gleneg into the city is great. A good family activity - land in the city and head into the Mall then back to tram to return back to Glenelg where a walk down Jetty Road or up the jetty eating an ice cream. Nice.

Glenelg was a wonderful place, it's got a very beautiful seaside and beach. Walking along the waterfront was very comfortable. Follow the guide walk from the information centre, you will find a place so comfortable and beauty that you don't want to leave.

Easy to access. Payment system on board straight forward to use, though you need to ask a local to find out about return tickets and which is best to purchase. Stuck close to timetable and was a great way to get around Adelaide.
