Semaphore Beach

Adelaide

Free
Semaphore is a north-western seaside suburb approximately 14km from Adelaide. Semaphore’s white sands, family-friendly shallows and colourful foreshore make for a classic Adelaide beach escape.

Semaphore’s white sands, family-friendly shallows and colourful foreshore make for a classic Adelaide beach escape. After walking the path through the dunes, a wide expanse of white sandy beach leads to the water.

Enjoy the expanse of green foreshore – two kilometres of public space preserved for what beach holidays are supposed to be all about. Fun! Ride on the vintage carousel, buy ice creams and fish and chips, cycle on the bike track, and ride on the steam train that puffs along the shoreline.

In Semaphore, our history isn’t confined to a museum. You can often see our local dolphins and seals from the end of the jetty. You can also see the Timeball Tower, one of the only working timeballs left in the world, the oldest working carousel in the southern hemisphere, the glorious 1920s Palais bathing pavilion (now the Semaphore Palais hotel) and historical buildings along Semaphore Road and the Esplanade.

Indulge in high-quality food in a beachside atmosphere, where fine dining and great pubs mix with quirky cafes and good old-fashioned fish and chips.
