21 Things to do in Unley

Need some inspiration? Here’s a list of 21 things to do in the City of Unley.
See what’s growing in the edible orchards at Morrie Harrell Reserve, Ramage Street, Unley, and Fullarton Park, Fisher Street, Fullarton.

Slide, jump, roll and play on lots of fun equipment at the Katherine Street playground, Fullarton. Rocks, logs, sensory planting, and a sandpit provide an area where the kids can interact with nature.

Ride the mini trains at SASMEE Park, Millswood Crescent, Millswood, operating on the 1st Saturday and 3rd Sunday of every month.

Let’s go fly a kite! The open space areas at Ridge Park or Orphanage Park are perfect locations.

Pick up some fresh produce from the Adelaide Showgrounds Farmers Market, held every Sunday on Leader Street, Goodwood.

Enjoy the change of seasons by sitting on a bench at Heywood Park and watching the world go by. Can you hear the kookaburras?

Ride the Mike Turtur Bikeway from the Black Forest to the Wayville Showgrounds.

Packed full of play equipment, the Princess Margaret Playground at Black Forest is a hidden gem. The kids will love it, trust us!

Unley Road offers 1.5km’s of shopping activity. Why not start at one end in the morning, have lunch and then wander back down the other side in the afternoon.

Head to the Unley Oval to see the local Sturt Football Club play. Practise your own footy skills on the oval after the game.

We now have two outdoor ping pong tables! Check them out at the Unley Civic Centre, Oxford Terrace, Unley, and Fullarton Park Community Centre, Fullarton Road, Fullarton.

Walk the Discover Historic Unley trail and pop in at the Unley Museum, 80 Edmund Avenue, Unley, to discover more about your neighbourhood.

See what you can find at Ridge Park, Myrtle Bank. Do you know how much water the dam can hold? Can you find the 250 year old ‘Eucalyptus microcarpa’ tree, or the giant lizards at the playground?

Visit one of Australia’s oldest hockey clubs, Forestville Hockey Club at Goodwood Oval.

Man’s best friend needs some exercise too! Take your dog to one of our great parks. More details regarding off-leash times can be found on our Dog Exercise Area page.  

Search for a good book at Unley Library and enjoy it at the Village Green, Rugby Street, Unley.

The City of Unley has so many places for kids to explore. Orphanage Park is one great example, where you can build a cubby house, catch tadpoles and make some mud pies!

Try out one of the many activities, workshops and programs held across our diverse Community Centres.

Walk Windsor Street trail from Fern Avenue Reserve to Unley Road and observe the native plants along the way.

Climb the stairs of grandstand at Goodwood Oval and enjoy the view.

Open the lid to discover what’s inside the ‘Toy Boxes’, at Ridge Park, Village Green, Soutar Park and Forestville
