Iridescent blue waters surround the historic structure that juts out from one of Adelaide’s most popular beaches and into the beautiful Gulf St Vincent.

Stroll along Glenelg Jetty to breathe in the fresh ocean air and enjoy the panoramic views of picturesque sandy beaches and bustling cafés on the shore. Spot marine wildlife and relax on the soft green grass of Jimmy Melrose Park.

Watch sea lions frolic playfully and wild dolphins glide through the clear waters around the jetty. If the weather is calm, join the paddleboarders who cruise the waters offshore.

Visit at low tide to see the remains of the original jetty, which was built in 1859 and extended 166 metres (544 feet) further than the current one. Imagine the old lighthouse that once stood on the end of the jetty to guide ships to nearby Glenelg Harbour. A powerful hurricane and fire destroyed the former wooden structure.

Spend a few hours fishing from the jetty with the keen locals that come to this popular spot. The stunning hues of the sunset colour the ocean as the jetty lights come on and the sea birds come in to roost for the night. If you haven’t been lucky enough to catch your meal, head to one of the nearby seafood restaurants.

Walk along the 5-kilometre (3-mile) foreshore path. The trail begins at the beachfront park in front of the jetty. You can also rent a bicycle from one of the vendors that operate along the esplanade in the summer months.

Arrive at Glenelg Jetty via tram from Adelaide’s city centre or walk from your accommodation in the trendy suburb of Glenelg.

Experience a peaceful moment at this local landmark to enjoy ocean views and beautiful beaches.
