We were staying in Glenelg and used the tram to get to the CBD and a walking tour.. it was great! It was a very hot day (41) and the Aircon was amazingly cool.

Great way to get to the beach at Glenelg for the beautiful sunset. The trams are frequent and easy to use, and take you right to the seafront.

Pleasant ride out to the beach. Air conditioned and smooth. Easy way to get from the city to the beach, once we worked out how to pay for the ticket.

Used the tram while in Adelaide, free in city area but ticket required to ride out to Glenelg . You can buy tickets on tram & some bigger stations. Trams don't travel very far in city but still can be helpful.

We caught the Glenelg team from Rundle Mall on a Sunday morning. It takes about 30 minutes and is pretty easy to use and navigate. Look for the sign displayed Glenelg on the front of the tram. When you board go to the ticket machine...More
