My hubby and I took the children to Glenelg for a look around. While the tram driver was standing on the platform waiting for his departure we had a chat and he advised us that we could ride to the end of Jetty Road for free with children. What a lovely fellow (I think his name was Doug) ... the... More

When in Adelaide, you must catch the tram to Glenelg. Escape the busy beat of the city and come down to one of Adelaides great coastal attractions, Jetty Road Glenelg. At $4 a ticket its a lovely cheap way to get from Victoria Square to the Bay. And Vice Versa too. Keen to see a concert at the Entertainment Centre... More

Everyone should catch the tram to Glenelg Beach. Great little trip from the city. Very inexpensive and great trip for the kids to enjoy, and the big kids. Glenelg is a gorgeous place by the beach. Lots of restaurants and cafes. Nice to just wander around the jetty and stroll leisurely along the beach. They have the ice-skating rink set... More

The tram was a great way to get to Glenelg, hassle free and relaxing giving us an opportunity to see the sights. There were five of us and there was no issue with seating. We caught the tram in the morning, walked along the beach front at Glenelg, found a place for lunch, followed by a stroll up the street... More

The tram journey gives the traveller a good insight into the suburbs between Adelaide and Glenelg. The tram travels down King Willaim Street and provides a good look at parts of the city. Glenelg is a very nice sea-side town. It's worth walking along Jetty Road. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes and the shopping is good. Walking along... More

Always good to have a ride on the trams of Glenelg and Adelaide, although they have changed a bit over the years. Trams always seem clean and punctual, with good signage and information. Decent peak and off peak timetable and the staff seem friendly and helpful too. It can be a bit tedious if you have to stop at all... More

The trip into Adelaide city is so easy on the tram. our only complaint would be that it doesnt carry many people and we travelled with a pram and there was only two designated areas for wheelchairs or prams and both were taken so we were stuck in the door way. That aside it is a great way around. Certain... More

I liked that you can go directly to your destination without having to stop off and get onto another form of public transport. Its reasonably fast and cheap. They also have security on at nights, so it feels safe. Was good

We took the tram to lovely Glenelg. The tram goes part way for free then you can buy a 2/3 hour ticket from Victoria Square. it was a beautiful day and a lovely gentle tram-ride with good views all round. Well worth doing especially with lovely Glenelg at the end.
