We're proud of South Australia, and we want to show it to the world
A Marshall Liberal Government will enable a range of new tourism and retail offerings at Glenelg while strengthening existing businesses by investing $20 million towards the redevelopment of the Glenelg Jetty.
Preliminary designs for the project include a major expansion and refit of the existing Glenelg Jetty to support a range of commercial developments including a hotel, restaurants and recreational facilities.
Our commitment is contingent on a detailed cost-benefit analysis being undertaken and contributions from local government, the Federal Government and private developers. This ensures South Australian taxpayers will be getting value-for-money for this investment and jobs for the state.
The Glenelg tourism precinct – comprising the Jetty, Moseley Square, the tram connecting the Bay with the CBD, as well as dozens of hospitality and retail outlets – is one of the jewels in the state’s tourism crown. Intrastate, interstate and international visitors look to Glenelg as a unique tourism experience in metropolitan Adelaide.
Although Glenelg remains one of the most recognisable metropolitan beaches, the precinct has struggled to reach its full potential as a tourism and cultural asset in recent years, with the key infrastructure underpinning many of the attractions in dire need of redevelopment.
By investing in important tourism infrastructure, we will unlock the potential to attract hundreds of millions of dollars of private investment.
That’s why we will act to revitalise this important tourism precinct.
