Glenelg is a popular beach-side suburb of the South Australian capital of Adelaide. Located on the shore of Holdfast Bay in Gulf St Vincent, it has become a popular tourist destination due to its beach and many attractions, home to several hotels and dozens of restaurants.

Its well worth the effort to take the tram from the City to Glenelg. Adelaide Beaches can be pretty bland but Glenelg pier is something different. Plenty of colour, eating places and entertainment,ent and a pristine Adelaide beach. the jetty is worth a stroll too. My favourite beach in Adelaide.

Whether One Is Aa Local or Visitor...it is a place where one can spend time getting to know more about South Australia, look at, and wonder at the Artifacts and Coins and Other Collections that were salvaged from the sunken ships. The models of the Buffalo Ship, The Cannon or Long Gun were also interesting so with the earlier models of houses, Swimsuits, Out house or 'Dunny' as we call it! The Paintings of the Proclamation of South Australia as a Colony and much more! I recommend it as one of the Places to visit here at Glenelg!

Our store at Adelaide’s premier beachside destination is conveniently situated right in the centre of this popular 7 day shopping precinct. It’s just a 5 minute walk from the beach and the same distance from Glenelg’s residential heart. Our team provide favourite chocolates to locals as well as tempting treats and souvenirs to holidaymakers and convention delegates from nearby hotels.
We popped into the Haigh's chocolate shop on Jetty Road during a recent visit to Glenelg. Like other Haigh's chocolate shops around Adelaide, there was a tremendous range of beautifully presented chocolates to choose from.
The chocolates on offer are well-displayed in the spacious and charming shop. There were so many varieties available to choose from that we just could not make our minds up about what to purchase. In the end, we reverted to an old childhood favourite, chocolate frogs and purchased some of them.
Whilst making our purchase, we found the shop assistant to be polite, helpful and efficient. The prices charged for Haigh's chocolates are certainly substantial but they simply reflect the quality of their products.
Haigh's chocolates, Glenelg is well worth a visit, if you are in the vicinity.

A well kept large reserve with a large playground area and lots of benches for relaxing. The Old Gum Tree area has probably lost its significance since I visited many years ago on a school excursion. Children were climbing on the tree, digging at it, etc ... not sure they were aware of the historical significance of the site.

This small art gallery is certainly worth a visit. It has a cross-section of indigenous art work. Prices are on the high side but if you are pressed fro time and want to take home some authentic art work then you will not be disappointed.

Starts at the old gum tree (43 Macfarlane st) which states near this tree on 20th Dec 1836, Governor John Hindmarsh delivered proclamation declaring SA a colony. Than walk down Macfarlane to marina over bridge on King st (crossing through Wrigley reserve). In wrigley reserve you will find HMS Buffalo which is a replica of the convict ship that made voyage in 1836. You can tour ship, which is quite interesting. You than head down the marina and than through Colley Reserve. Stop at the lovely Rotunda in Colley Reserve. You than keep walking back to Old Gum Tree. Not a bad walk with a few points of interest

Now this I like! Very much. We've visited a handful of times and have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves every time. As a couple, with children, evening and day.
The Beach Club is a long overdue great addition to this much-loved beach. Located right next to the Glenelg jetty, is easily accessible to the ocean when needed. Its appearance is cool and crisp with navy and white Seating and umbrellas on Glenelg's beautiful white sand. At night the lights overhead add a touch of romanticism. Overall the vibe is relaxed and casual. Staff are very friendly and attentive.
Daybeds and sun lounges must be booked online with credit toward food and drink from the bar. And a small cover charge for adults applies after 5pm. Beach footwear is a must on our very hot days, simply because that sand gets mighty hot, but that's my rule not theirs.
This is the perfect spot to relax on an oversized bean bag or daybed and sip on a Pimms or two whilst immediately feeling that you're on holiday, maybe somewhere in Europe, at least miles away from day-to-day life. Great. Love it.
