What a delightful way to travel from the seaside to the city each day without the fuss of cars,buses r traffic jams.And for an enthusiastic bus spotter and tram passenger in Blackpool the conditions were much more comfortable but the sound on the tracks of the approaching trams brought back pleasant childhood memories

Very convenient tram system running from the city to Glenelg. Great place for a day out or dinner and a stroll along the beach. Frequent trams make this trip so easy. Can be busy in peak hour though!

Take the tram from Glenelg to the city for shopping, football or cricket at Adelaide Oval or to the casino, festival Theatre or Entertainment centre. It is the best way to get there and saves heaps on car parking and no traffic worries.

The new trams are so easy to use, great views and so smooth. Not expensive either which helps. Get the day pass, gives you access to buses and trains.

This is the part of the Adelaide network you pay for. Nice way to see the scenery if you are a tourist. Used to have extremely helpful conductors who would reassure everyone they were going the right way, make sure they bought the best value ticket and sort out the cash. Now they have just stuck an automated machine halfway... More

Let's face it, while Adelaide is a pleasant enough city is not overwhelmed with tourist attractions. So, every time I'm in town I usually ride the tram out to Glenelg and back. Glenelg is a worthwhile destination, with a beach and pier, a public square, lots of cafes and restaurants, a museum, and a fair bit of history of its... More

Had heard a lot about Glenelg and its history. We enjoyed the tram trip out and it is certainly worth visiting.

Last time we took the tram to Glenelg was 10 years ago and it was still the old one in service, so we missed it not being the 'old tram' but it was still a nice ride to Glenelg and well worth the time to go. Glenelg itself was really nice and you can just meander around, have a coffee... More

we didn't have cash when we jumped on and my card wouldn't work so we didn't pay for the outward journey. The driver said not to worry but it felt bad. You need change for the tram.

Great way to get around and a great lunch out at Glenelg. The payment system is not user friendly. You can't use notes to pay, only coins or card. You don't know this until you are aboard. We noticed several people struggling with this and just gave up.
