Glenelg Travel Guide: 60 reviews and 216 photos


Glenelg is a great place to shop, swim and eat! It's only a 20 minute drive southwest of Adelaide (CLICK HERE to visit my Adelaide VT page).


Jetty Road is only about 10 blocks long and has dozens of shops and restaurants, with the Stamford Grand Hotel at the end, next to the jetty. Also next to the jetty is the Rodney Fox Shark Experience Museum and a few cafes. Up towards the start of Jetty Road is Glenelg Cinema which shows a few movies a day and has some unique old-fashioned decor. A few doors down is my favorite restaurant in Glenelg, Spices. See my tip for more info.


The Adelaide - Glenelg Tram runs down Jetty Road, adding extra charm to the place. For the tram schedule, CLICK HERE. The trip takes about 25 minutes from downtown Adelaide.
