Not sure about the old trams, I never use them. The tram line was Glenelg to Adelaide. Has now been extended to Hindmarsh, on Prort Road. Might pay to Google Map it if you want to see where it is. As it runs right past the train station, & paralell with the train tracks, one or two of us crow eaters feel the 30 odd katrzillion dollars may have been put to better use. Then to go & BUY trams from germany while we have so much unemployment just rubs salt into the wounds. I was elated on Sunday morning when they announced the parlement was hung, then I found out that they didn't hang any of the Bas@!$s.
You are right, no CV Park at Glenelg. There is a nice one at West Beach, to the North & one at Seacliff to the south. I'd go north. Further North, but still only 20 mins from Glenelg, there is the Adelaide Beachfront CVP next to Fort Glanville , also very nice, & still on the beach. There is a Miniture Train that runs Tourists & Mums & Dads that can't get out of it, from the CVP to Semaphore where they have a sort of Carnival set up with rides & side shows over the Christmas Holidays. JMO, I recon the best time to stay there would be over the NEW Year break. They also put on a free Firewoks display at the end of the Semaphore Jetty on New Years Eve, which is not too shabby & you can get a good view of it from the beach which is not too crowded as a general rule. Take the esky & Chairs & make an evening of it. Few nice pubs & Cafes' along semaphore road that are worth checking out as well as other shops, supermarket or 2 etc.http://www.discoveryholidayparks.com.au ... beachfront
West Lakes shopping centre is in between these 2 CVP's about the same distance, if shops are your thing. Personally, I love shopping, for new wood work machinery or caravan & camping eq etc.
If its Camping you are into, My fav close to Adelaide spot, (2 Hrs) is the DEEP CREEK National Park. Great spot with composting toilets Great scenery & if you are into bushwalking, You will love this. It takes in part of the Heysen Trail.http://www.heysentrail.asn.au/heysen_tr ... lemaps.php
Parachilna Gorge is another of my fav camping spots at the other end of the Heysen Trail. For those not sure about the Heysen Trail, Hanns Heysen was a Pioneer Australian Scenery Painter who lived in the German community of Hahndolf, (Great tourist town & well worth a visit) in the Adelaide hills. He walked from the coast at Cape Jarvis to the Parachilna gorge in the Flinders Rangers painting landscapes. He did this so often that the route became known as the Heysen Trail.
"Yes wine & I are great friends no matter the colour......come to think of it beer and I are also great friends"
I like my wine to tast just like Burbon, Vintaged in a cold can since about last Friday & served repeatedly & Often. As for Beer, I like my beer to tast just like Burbon.....
I don't like to drink alone, But fortunatley, I have a few good mates. Sam Couger, Jack Daniels & Jim Beam. I am thinking that by changing from our old Camper Trailer to the new Van, I should be able to reduce opening time from 2 hours to about 10 mins. What do you recon.
