The Glenelg Pier was a very fun visit. Beautiful walk along the beach, complete with volleyball nets for the more sporty among us. The Pier delivered excellent views looking back across the beach and out to ocean. Can't help but imagine how many Great White Sharks are out there because of it being South Australia! Excellent photography opportunities here too... More

A great place to visit for an awesome view and jumping/swimming fun. Just check the water depth first as it depends on the tide.

What a beautiful day when we were out at Glenelg and visited the pier. There was very little wind to speak of, the place was tidy with lots of shops and cafes. We loved it.

We spent a lovely morning exploring Glenelg and the pier was lovely. Blue skies, clear sea, happy kids. The pier is central to Glenelg and sits over a white sandy beach, there's a small play park for kids too at the end of the pier. Definitely a "must do" in Adelaide.

Parking is a bit difficult. The Max is 3 hours, so you have to move your car if you stay longer. There is a Tram which... More
