If you have a lot of time this is a relaxing, albeit slow way to view some of Adelaide's lovely bungalows down to Glenelg. This tram is popular, and although we rode it on a week day the tram was full. Glenelg's beach is open and broad and we found it a lovely place to visit. Walk along the pier... More

The tram doesnt always seem to be operating, so check before you go. One day we went it wasn't in operation all day. The next day we had to wait half an hour for it. However, given its age i will let if off. Glenelg is lovely. The beach is stunning and the water at the end of summer was... More

Great to come and go from Glenelg to the city, but not much in between. It was clean, modern and frequent.
