Glenelg Pier

One never gets enough of the sea and its atmosphere. Drop by to the Glenelg Pier during the evenings for a calming walk amongst the waves and seagulls. First built in the eighteenth century, this pier was destroyed by a fire and a hurricane after that ruined almost all traces of the pier. Rebuilt again in 1969, the Glenelg Pier is a great location to be at during the sunsets while the pier itself has all the qualities for a perfect Instagram worthy picture.

Proclamation Trail

Ideal for someone looking for a bit of physical activity, this self guided trail winds its way past historical sites. You have the option of either walking through the trail or using a mountain bike. Some of the sites you will come across as you go through the Proclamation Trail are 'First Landing' and the 'Old Gum Tree'. The latter is the location where the 'Proclamation of South Australia' was read, which should explain the historical significance behind the trail and its name.
