    Adelaide’s tram system consists of one tram line which runs from the Entertainment Centre via the city centre to the seaside town of Glenelg. While only one line the system is very useful to visitors for three reasons: (i) the section from the Entertainment Centre to South Terrace – eleven stops - is free, hop on hop off as you like.

    Adelaide Transportation

    Adelaide’s Outer Harbor train line runs, not surprisingly, between Adelaide Railway Station and Outer Harbor Station on the northern tip of the Lefevre Peninsula on the Gulf St Vincent. I include a review on this specific station for two reasons: 1. Port Adelaide Passenger Terminal is at Outer Harbor. This is the terminal used by ocean going...

  • Self-drive

    Adelaide Transportation

    Driving in Adelaide is very easy. The roads are very open and the traffic is quite light compared to other capital states in Australia. With only two highways in Adelaide it is quite easy to get back on track if you make a wrong turn.

  • O Bahn

    Adelaide Transportation

    As we were staying outside of Adelaide, we decided to park our car at Tea Tree Gully, and catch the O-Bahn Bus into the city. Tea Tree Gully is a large shopping complex in the North East Suburbs of Adelaide, and is the end or the beginning of the O'Bahn, depending which way you look at it. It is a very quick, cheap way to reach the city, and...

  • Dirt Road - an adventure

    South Australia has many dirt roads. Take the road less travelled to see some fabulous country side. 4/4 wheel driving is a great way to get around on these roads but some are accessible to on road vehicles too. Although the roads are dirt they are mostly well maintained and can be quite smooth allowing you to travel at a decent speed. Beware...

  • Main North rd. From Adelaide to Valley

    Main North rd is the main rd connecting Adelaide to the northern suburbs such as Salisbury, Elizabeth and Gawler. The Stuart Highway, the road that leads to Alice Springs, branches off of Main North. That's how Adelaide got its catch phrase "Gateway to the outback". For something closer than Alice Springs you might want to take a visit to the...

  • Cabs in Melbourne

    They never seemed to know where they were going. Not sure if we just got 4 bad ones in a row but they all took extra long routes to get where they were going. A few times I had to give them dirrections. Sound a little dodgy to me. Just go oround the city on Trams, alot easier and cheaper!

    We arived via the Indian-Pacific, one of the great train trips in the world. It crosses the vast nallarbor plain en route to Western Australia and takes three days from Sydney to Perth. Splurge and get a private sleeper. The trams are great to use around Adelaide and to the coast, it's quite an extensive network.
