Located only 10 kilometres from the heart of Adelaide City, Glenelg is a charming seaside resort set on the long sandy white shores of Holdfast Bay. Glenelg is the site of South Australia's original mainland settlement in 1836. It is Adelaide's most popular coastal region.
Glenelg has a perfect Mediterranean climate characterized by warm dry summers and cool mild winters. Summer temperatures average around 27 degrees celsius and winter months around 15 degrees celcius.
A short 25 minute trip, on a tram departing from the centre of Glenelg - Moseley Square, takes you into Victoria Square in the heart of Adelaide. So you can base yourself at seaside Glenelg, but you are just a short trip away from the lights of the big city!
But really why leave this delightful seaside destination, when everything is at your fingertips. We hope you enjoy your stay at Glenelg, we know you will want to come back again for some more of what this beautiful town has to offer.
