Leap onto the tram in King William Street and meander your way to the beautiful Glenelg beach precinct. The tram is cheap. quiet and very well air conditioned. The beach is superb - kids playground and cafes of all types. A great place to while away a few hours!!

Glenelg is a nice place to spend an afternoon or an evening. By tram, you can easily get there. Please note: It is outside the free tram zone and takes about half an hour from the CBD.

The tram to the lovely beach suburb of Glenelg could just as well be called a light rail and has an uninterrupted trip through the suburbs making it useful for both locals and tourists alike. A pleasant trip.

Glenelg is a great beach destination with lots of cafes and things to do like museums for the oldies and dodgem cars (and water dodgem) for the young among many other activities.

The tram is very busy at times and no real redeeming features. The beach is nothing spectacular and could be missed. However, if you have a spare afternoon while in Adelaide it's a cheap way to use the afternoon

The Glenelg tram is a terrific way to access the city especially with the cost of parking. Park you car for free around Glandore and catch the tram in. The tram comes every 15 minutes and only takes around 15 mins from there. It is the same coming back out of the city. If you are visiting Adelaide, book your... More

Gleneig tram is a quick way to travel from Adelaide City to the local beach. You need to buy a ticket before getting on although there is a machine on the tram but is quite difficult to understand so best to do it before. The tram takes you through the outer areas of Adelaide and gives you an insight into... More

We traveled and stayed overnight in the Adelaide cbd. We were told it was free trams within the cbd which we used a lot including a trip to a concert at the Adelaide Entertainment Center. The concert finished at 11.30 pm and the free trams were waiting to take us back to city. Well done Adelaide Council

We travelled for free as we couldn't work out how to use the pay machine on the tram. And trying to operate the machine while the tram is in motion is impossible. Certainly not user friendly.
