GLENELG

Get to know
the area

One of Adelaide’s most popular and progressive beachside locations, Glenelg lays claim to a pristine coastline, trendy eateries, a bustling retail strip and a laid-back vibe. Glenelg offers the perfect mix of urban convenience and seaside charm.

Lifestyle

Renowned for its pristine beach, rich heritage, sidewalk cafés and stunning sunsets, Glenelg is as much a holiday destination as it is a place to call home.

Popular year-round, the beach and marina take centre stage. Runners pound the pavement along the esplanade, while families eat fish and chips and splash in the waves along the shoreline. Swimmers, sailors, kayakers, windsurfers and snorkelers are a regular feature while there are volleyball and polo competitions on the beach during summer and a pop-up ice skating rink takes over during winter.

The main retail strip along Jetty Road is easily accessed by the Glenelg Tram and has an eclectic mix of fashion boutiques, speciality shops, movie cinemas, alfresco cafés, restaurants and bars. Moseley Square is home to the popular Stamford Grand Hotel and is also where locals and visitors come together to revel in the sun.

Food and wine is a major part of the Glenelg lifestyle. The cafés and restaurants in and around Jetty Road and the Holdfast Marina serve up some of the best seafood in Adelaide. Step away from the main hub and Glenelg adopts a much quieter feel – pine tree-lined streets offer a shady retreat with leafy green parks and reserves.
