Informative place to stop by
Glenelg is the oldest European settlement in South Australia, having been established as a British colony in the early 1800s. The Glenelg Town Hall is almost 150 years old and it’s an iconic landmark on Mosley Square. Inside, there’s a small exhibition on the history of Glenelg, Holdfast Bay and South Australia. The entire bay area has a pretty cool walking trail, which I plan to return to explore. Start the trail here at the town hall where you can get more information, trail maps etc. After my trail walk in Sydney’s Bondi to Coogee, I’m game for another adventure.
The playground around is great for 2 to 7, but is not fenced
If you come to Adelaide for the history you have to visit the Glenelg Town Hall that's where your questions of the early history of Adelaide and then South Australia will be answered. The Service was just excellent freindly and smiling staff. I myself was shown around personally by one of the assistant's it was just a all-round pleasure to visit.
The museum is beutiful and interesting, it will take you probably top 30 min and it's for free! There is also a gallery in the bottom floor so you might catch an exibition as well.
Nice place with a good and free museum
There's a small museum showcasing the brief history of Glenelg. It's worth a visit. Also, an art exhibition room for artists to exhibit their paintings.
