Turn the Glenelg jetty into a proper pier. Ferries on one side, cruise ships on the other. Retail, dining & entertainment in the middle.

Flinders Ports can take over the old cruise ship terminal and expand the container facility or whatever.

Cape Jervois can be downgraded to serve the local communities with smaller more economical ferries, and the bigger ferries moved up to Glenelg. Tie in the ferry operations with the operating of aspects of the pier it self so that the cost of catching a ferry across the Gulf or down to KI isnt as cost prohibitive.
Terrific idea! Would be awesome

If we built a new Glenelg Pier with the same scale as the Brighton Pier in England, it would extend out to the tyre reef. also roughly the same length as the dock the Spirit of Tasmania uses in Melbourne

Does that have cruise ships visit? How do semi trailers fit to resupply, and busses to collect/deliver the passengers and their luggage? It looks very crowded for a practical terminal.

No, there's no shipping of any kind which uses Brighton Pier - it's for pleasure only. It has a large fairground at the end, two 'pavillions' with arcade machines and restaurants along it's length, as well as a variety of small kiosks and such.

An abominable mess of what was once a grand Victorian pier but it's very popular with tourists...

A Santa Monica or Brighton Pier style expansion to Glenelg would be fantastic for the area.

Imagine something like the climbing adventure park at West Beach, but at the end of a pier overhanging the ocean.

Is there a huge demand to walk or drive 200m up a pier to some business?

All I see is lots of money to build and run a facility with poor access.
