Top Day Trips from Adelaide

From the seaside town of Glenelg to tasting your way through the Barossa Valley, there are so many day trips you can do from Adelaide.

Located only 20 minutes from Adelaide CBD, the seaside suburb of Glenelg is a place not to be missed. Easily accessible by both car and tram from Adelaide, you can relax on the beach, dine at one of the many restaurants and cafes or shop until you drop along the kilometre strip of boutique shops of Jetty Road. Finish the day with a drink while watching the sunset over the water.
