Glenelg – Popular Beach Side Suburb of Adelaide

Glenelg – Popular Beach Side Suburb of Adelaide

After Haigh’s Chocolate Factory, we drove to Glenelg. Glenelg is suburb not really far away from the city centre of Adelaide. Around half an hour or less drive, anyone can immediately reach the suburb with different transporation options available. Aside from driving, there is a tram from the city centre straight to Glenelg that’s why the beach side suburb is very accessible to all.

As I looked into the information about Glenelg, I learned that the suburb is considered as the oldest European settlement in mainland of South Australia.

I always excited every time I am on my way to another place as part of the tour because I always anticipate that there are new things to see and new things to either discover or learn to the places that I am visiting. From South Terrace where we came from, we took Anzac Highway. Well Anzac name is quite famous around Australia, because it has a great part of history in the country. Similar name has been used such Anzac Bridge and Anzac War Memorial.

As we approach the suburb, from Anzac Highway we turned right to Adelphi Terrace, until we reached King Street and as we continued, we drove along N Esplanade where we witness great scenery along the road as it is a coastal road. We return to the King St and cross the bridge where we saw a scenic Patawalonga Lake and back to Adelphi Terrace and then Anzac Highway. Our bus continued its journey until we drove to the same road where the tram track from the city centre was laid out which named as Jetty Road. We passed Moseley Square and parked our bus along Colley Terrace. From Colley Terrace we started our own journey in Glenelg.

After jumping off the bus, I tried to capture photos as much as I can because I only have more than an hour to explore and appreciate the place. Though it was a quick one I enjoyed my walk in the area. From Colley Terrace, I passed Glenelg Community Centre, some familiar hotel accommodations, the famous Jetty Road where the Glenelg Tram track from Adelaide City Centre, Moseley Square where Glenelg Town Hall and Pioneer Memorial are located.

After enjoying some time in Moseley Square, I continued my walk in the area as I saw Glenelg Beach, Glenelg Jetty and Jimmy Melrose Park. I as wander the place, I saw Glenelg Surf Life Saving Club, Beach House and a nearby Ferris Wheel. I had a great time during my quick stroll in Glenelg because I got a chance to glimpse this famous beach side suburb in Adelaide.
