Brighton, Adelaide, South Australia, 5048


Brighton Beach is a little south of Glenelg. It has an art deco feel, jetty, cafés and restaurants.

Recline in the sunshine out the front of the many lovely cafes. Enjoy a hearty breakfast and a walk along the wide, sandy beach.

At the beach end of Jetty Road stands a grand memorial to Australian soldiers who fought in the first World War. The Anzac Memorial attracts a large crowd each Anzac Day dawn (25 April).

The Brighton Surf Life Saving Club is based at Brighton Beach, you’ll feel safe knowing that they’re nearby. The Brighton Jetty Classic occurs each year at the surf life saving club. There are a series of swimming competition events for various levels of swimmers. It is held in February and is accompanied by the
Brilliant Brighton Jetty Classic Sculptures event, inspired by the Cottlesloe Sculptures by the Sea event held in Western Australia.

Grab some fish and chips and nestle in the sand while waves wash up the shore. After a busy day in the sun (or not so busy) this is a blissful way to spend a summer evening.

If you’ve got energy to burn, go south and walk along the cliffs and trails down the coast. You can catch a spectacular view of the city.
