Holdfast Bay

An historic and popular Adelaide coastal area, Holdfast Bay encompasses Glenelg, Brighton, Seacliff and Kingston Park. Holdfast Bay is just 20 minutes from Adelaide's city centre and less than 10 minutes from the domestic and international airports. Its coast offers great opportunities all year for both business travellers and holiday seekers. Glenelg's well-known 'Old Gum Tree' was the site chosen by Governor Hindmarsh to read the proclamation of South Australia on 28 December 1836. Each year this event is celebrated on Proclamation Day with a re-enactment of this reading on the same site. While visiting, see the HMS Buffalo - an authentic replica of the original ship that brought the state's first Governor to Holdfast Bay - now a floating restaurant. Experience Glenelg's bustling Jetty Road, the marina and Holdfast Shores development, beautiful white beaches, heritage walks and buildings, as well as a wide variety of accommodation, attractions, activities, festivals, cuisine and shopping. Brighton, Kingston Park and Seacliff boast a relaxed lifestyle and superb coastal views. They offer a variety of shopping, dining, historical features and seaside activities. The area has a Mediterranean climate characterised by warm dry summers and cool mild winters, with summer temperatures averaging 27 degrees Celsius and winter months around 15 degrees Celsius.
