Can't remember the cost, but if you're staying in Glenelg and planning to go in and out of the CBD a few times, it's worth getting a plastic card from the Jetty Rd newsagent.
I will be in Adelaide for the day arriving on cruise ship. How far is the tram from the Outer wharf where ships come in? Is it within walking distance. I saw that tickets can be purchased on the corners of Currie & King Williams Street. It sounds like it might be easier if I just purchased at the time of arriving on the tram as long as I have correct change.

You buy tickets on tram. We caught tram from the city to Glenelg which it takes you virtually to the beach. I suggest you go to the information centre which is in James Place off Rundle Mall. Enjoy your cruise.
I am confused. Why do some reviews here state that the Glenelg Tram is free while other reviewers talk about tapping cards and fares. I will be visiting Adelaide for only 2 days for a conference and staying in a hotel in Glenelg, I am thinking of catching the Tram to the Central Market which is all I have time for after the conference. I don't want to unknowingly be a fare evader nor do I want to unnecessarily buy a metrocard. Could someone please enlighten me?
