Glenelg

(3.7/5 based on 1,200+ reviews for top 10 attractions)
Things to do: sightseeing, theme parks, museums
The oldest European settlement on South Australia's mainland, Glenelg is named after a former Secretary of State for War and the Colonies, Lord Glenelg. Tourists come for the amusement parks that populate the city with Ferris wheels, one of which has a 25 m (82 ft) single arm wheel that gives a spectacular view. You will find a modern spin on the classic carnival amusement park in town complete with a preserved historic carousel. The friendly population, the majority of whom are descended from Northern European immigrants, number just under 3,500 people. Glenelg is a quiet oasis of everyday living with just a few tall buildings. The roller coasters and Ferris wheel give the town a nostalgic sweetness.   When using our Australia vacation trip planner to make an itinerary online, Glenelg holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.
