Semaphore & Surrounds

The Semaphore foreshore area offers a range of recreational facilities including a free kids playground and kiosk, water-slide, mini-golf, old style carousel, Ferris wheel (made famous in the Elvis Presley movie Roustabout), a skate park and a cycling and walking track that extends from Outer Harbor in the north to Normanville, approximately 70 kilometres away on the southern metropolitan coast.

The beach is wide and one of the safest swimming beaches in Adelaide, the sandhills are fringed by grassed areas popular for BBQing and picnicing.

The Semaphore shopping precinct has an old fashioned friendly feel, with cafes, restaurants, hotels, fashion, art, furniture and antique marts and lots more to explore. The Odeon Star cinema complex is an olde world style cinema, showing all the latest releases for a bargain price of $9 all day everyday.

The historic maritime area of Port Adelaide has a Railway Museum, Aviation Museum and a Maritime Museum, galleries, markets and loads of history filled streets to explore. The Dolphin cruises attract hundreds of hopeful sightseers, and rarely disappoint.

We are a  short walk from the Outer Harbour train line, which will have you in downtown Adelaide in 25 minutes. Glenelg is approx 20 minutes  by car, or take the train into the city and connect with the tram to the Bay (or you could try walking the 18kms directly along the beach – just head south!).
