The Beachouse Ferris Wheel

Opened on Saturday December 6th, this is an Australian first; a single arm ferris wheel. Glenelg has waited two years longer than planned for this to eventuate, and the almost $1.8 million cost of building it was over budget. Unlike other traditional ferris wheels you get a continuous ride; people board and disembark while it moves.

Very attractive Ferris Wheel! I envy you your summer weather down there. Up here it is all snow. But it makes for a nice Christmas. I hope yours is a happy one and that you have a Good New Year!

Looks like a great ride! Appears to work similar to a ski lift tram...without the snow. You can have some of our snow btw. We have plenty. Fun to see life down under.

Hi Gordon! I just discovered your blog and I must tell you that I love the pictures and tid bits of info you offer about the area. I am such a travel nut. There are SO many places I want to see. You just helped put Adelaide Australia at the top of my list. Cheers! :)

Apologies for a cut and paste, but there was no way on Earth I would be able to make it around the whole globe to wish everybody a Merry Christmas otherwise. I’m not Santa, you know!

Anyway, from myself, Henry and Ezra, have a Merry Christmas/Winter Solstice/Hanukkah/Festivus and a happy New Year!

I hope that all of your holiday photos turn out to be triumphs and all your souffl├ęs rise accordingly.
