Our first experience with South Australia

Sarah was nice enough to plan out a wonderful 30th birthday weekend for us in South Australia. Upon landing from the airport, it was clear we were best served by getting something to eat as soon as possible. After surveying the map and looking at our tips from Virtual Tourist, Glenelg looked like an ideal spot.

The city is located about 6 kms from Adelaide Airport, and about 15 km southwest of the Adelaide CBD.

There are plenty of nice restaurants located here, as well as a Great White Shark Exhibition, a little seashore, and a nice boardwalk for a stroll.

    An interesting page about this historical port city. The Glenelg townhall picture is great. South Australia is a region I haven't seen yet, thanks for the virtual tour. Nancy : )

    The train ride will not be the same with modern trains :-( Good to see the old ones will run through weekends! I wasn't aware of the shark museum, now I have another reason to go back :-)
