Glenelg

Suburb Profile

Overview

While it might be the oldest European settlement on mainland South Australia, Glenelg is anything but ancient. Youthful, energetic and buzzing with attractions, Adelaide’s most popular beachside suburb is one not to miss.

Snuggled into Holdfast Bay 11-kilometres south-east of Adelaide, Glenelg is a lively seaside village that’s continually bustling with locals and visitors alike. Established in 1836, the trendy waterside strip is teeming with modern attractions and old world charms. Amid the modish apartments, colourful cafés and tasteful sushi trains, you can still feel the history and tradition of this grand old dame. The Pioneer Memorial and free museum at Moseley Square are a continual reminder of Glenelg’s unique heritage, as is the Federation Trail that winds around Holdfast Bay taking in World War II relics such as workers’ cottages, colonial buildings and an air raid shelter.

A continual haze of sun, salt and serenity lingers in the air in this part of Adelaide. Glenelg North delivers upmarket dining and prime sunset viewing at Holdfast Marina, while the bay’s famous white sandy beach stretches along the S Esplanade from Glenelg down to Glenelg South offering ideal sea conditions for swimming and dolphin spotting. Jetty Road is smack-bang in the middle of the three suburbs and is Glenelg’s most popular destination for shopping, dining, entertainment, gallery hopping and people watching.

Just a short tram ride away from the Adelaide CBD (on the city’s oldest running tram, no less), Glenelg is what beachside living dreams are made of.
