Natural Feature
“No visit to Glenelg is complete without checking out Glenelg beach. Nice place to go for a swim or to sit on the beach and relax. Great to walk down the pier and even to go for a stroll along the esplanade. For the best walk, head south. You will be able to walk all the way down to Somerton Park along the path or if you are feeling like you want a longer walk the beach goes all the way down to Seacliff. ”

Shopping Mall
“Adelaide's answer to DFO. Harbour Town is where you can grab yourself a bargain. Lots of big brand names with big discounts. On beautiful sunny days Harbour Town can get quite busy, especially on weekends. Ideal time to go is week days to avoid crowds. Hot tip! When you arrive head to Centre Management to grab a discount card which is offered to all visitors. This will give you further discounts at most of the stores in the centre. ”
