Glenelg has grown into a vibrant holiday destination, buzzing with trendy cafes and fine dining. The Adelaide hinterland provide the rest of the country with world class wines, so they flow freely here along with the conversation and friendly locals. Another famous icon is the vintage tram, conveniently depositing travellers right to Glenelg beach from the centre of Adelaide. Why not base yourself in Glenelg and then hop on the tram for a traffic free day of sightseeing? In under an hour you have the best of both worlds.
Many locals and tourists head to Glenelg for the white beaches, dazzling sunsets and, of course, the shopping. There are over two hundred outlets to choose from, and when you tire of hunting for bargains, the museums and galleries are brimming with local talent and historical artefacts just waiting to be discovered. History buffs will be drawn to the end of Anzac Highway for a birds eye look at the replica of the 'HMS Buffalo', which stands tall and proud against the coastal backdrop. Adelaide is known as the art capital of Australia, and the more you see of Glenelg it is obvious this rich creativity has spread
There are heaps of things to do once you get here, such as all types of water sports, volleyball, cycling, golf and plenty of sightseeing. Jetty Road is the place to head once you are ready for a stroll. This is the shopping strip, and offers endless scenery, walkways and is the main meeting place in town. Weekends provide more entertainment, with markets adding to the bargains you are destined to find here.
You can't miss the Bay Discovery Centre, giving you a closer look at this diverse region. Located at the Glenelg Town Hall, each exhibition will capture your imagination and give you a wider appreciation of Glenelg and the wonder of South Australia. Combine this with the popular Proclamation Trail, a three and a half kilometre trail through the city leading you to a number of important historical sites along the way.
Dolphins and whales are common to the area so bring your binoculars and prepare for some relaxing 'mammal spotting' by the waters edge, or head out on one of the dolphin tours, 'Temptation Sailing', for a closer look. There is an abundance of wildlife up and down the coastline, and plenty of walks bringing you closer to nature and a closer look at the beauty of this area.
Known as the 'house of fun', The Beachouse is one attraction you don't want to miss. With three waterslides, dodgem cars, a five storey play castle, carousel and arcade games there is something for the whole family. There is also an 18 hole mini golf course that Dad will love! This has helped put Glenelg on the map with so many choices of fun for all ages. You will want to keep coming back!
Glenelg has so much to offer, with its gorgeous blue bay, ideal weather and countless choice of touristy shops it's a fantastic destination for the holiday maker in search of a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. An added advantage for travellers is its close proximity to Adelaide, so you can choose where to base yourself. My preference is Glenelg as a destination. There is too much to see and do here just in one day alone.
