    Cheap accommodation by the beach


    I stayed at Glenelg Beach Hostel for 4 nights in early April 2006.

    This hostel/guesthouse is located in the historic Alexander Terrace building, a row of former terrace houses now converted into tourist accommodation.

    It is located on Moseley Street, just a couple of minutes walk from Moseley Square. The cafes, bars, restaurants and shops of Jetty Road, the long sandy beach and the historic Glenelg Tram (which runs to Adelaide city centre) can all be reached in just a couple of minutes on foot.

    Despite being called a hostel, it doesn’t just have dorm rooms, but also single and double rooms with shared bathroom facilities and family rooms.

    I paid 40 AUD (approx. 18 GBP) per night for a single room with shared bathroom.

    My room was clean, but it was never cleaned during my stay. It had a TV (local channels only), a sink, a window, a stool and a few cupboards and drawers. It didn't have a fridge or air conditioning....but the window could be opened fully and had a grill to stop mosquitoes getting in.

    The shower rooms are clean, but there aren't many of them. One shower room (with just one shower and toilet) serves 4 rooms. There are separate shower rooms for males and females though. No towels are provided.

    Guests get a private door key so there is no curfew, and the rooms are located in houses with separate entrances so you don't need to go through reception each time you enter and leave.

    The reception area has a lot of brochures and fliers detailing local attractions and organised tours. There is also a TV room (with a large plasma screen TV on the wall and a host of comfortable sofas) and a lively bar area.

    Free luggage storage is available.

    Basic rooms in an excellent location. Good value for money!

    Directions: In the beach resort of Glenleg, just a 2 minute walk from Moseley Square, the Glenelg Tram stop, Jetty Road and the long sandy beach.

lodging near Cape Jervis

by linlorli

I'm driving the GOR from Melbourne end of March. Can someone give some advice on lodging not far from the ferry to KI and what to expect weather to be like that time of year?

Re: lodging near Cape Jervis

by fionasydney

Victor Harbor has many choices for accommodation and is a short drive to Cape Jervis.
On Kangaroo Island in March you would expect clear, sunny days in the low 20's and nights down to around 10 deg C.
I would still swim in KI at that time, but some would think the water too cold!

Black and red swimming swans (Cygnus atratus)

by hennanights

Elder park in the city centre is home to Adelaide's beautiful black swans who spend their days swimming back and forth in the river Torrens. These elegant birds are very use to living with people and will often come to the sides of the bank to check you out. Unfortunately they do this in the hopes of receiving food but try to resist the temptation to feed them as its quite harmful to them and can even cause their death. Better to snap a few photos and enjoy the few minutes you have up close until they figure out their not getting a free lunch today.
Black swans are found throughout Australia.

St. Peter's Cathedral

by bijo69

This beautiful Neogothic Cathedral was finished in 1901 after a construction period of 22 years.
The helpful ladies who attend to the church will answer all the questions concerning the church. In addition to it there are a couple leaflets in different languages to guide you through the building.
The church is open from 9.30am to 4pm every day.

Hallet Cove is a southern suburb of Adelaide, located by the sea. You don't need a car, it can be reached by train (noarlunga line to Marino or Hallet cove stations) or bus.
The Hallett Cove conservation park is here, this is a geological and archaeological area of the Australian Ice age, approx 280 milliion years ago. Aboriginal stone implements were first discovered here in 1934, and now, nearly 2000 have been discovered.
There are quite a few different walks, each has an interperative sign to tell you the history of the area you are in.

I've heard from friends that Adelaide has a good nightlife scene with great cafes, restaurants, bars, pubs, clubs, and raves.
Seeing that I was 7 years old the last time I visited, I didn't get the chance to partake in the 18+ scene, but I'd like to return and see Adelaide again.
