A fun ride to the beach. It was relaxing to sit and see Adelaide suburbs pass by for 30 minutes. A must do!

Now with modern German trams. A justifiably popular service linking suburbs with lovely Glenelg ( a real gem) and with the city centre. A comfortable,quick,economical,convenient and cheap way to travel. Hopefully the government will further extend this excellent and environmentally friendly service.

The old tram (which I believe was supposed to keep running on the weekends as a concession to those who loved them but somehow got shuffled to the bottom of the 'yes we will actually do what we say we will do' pile offered some attraction, being oldey worldy, charming etc. The new trams are very good for commuters but...

It doesnt matter if you stay in Adelaide or Glenelg because neither is far away when using the tram. The tram gives you easy access to the ocean,the restaurants and the shops of Glenelg and the city.

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
