Discover Historic Goodwood

On the back of the success of the Goodwood Road streetscape celebrated on Sunday, there is now even more to enjoy which captures Goodwood’s unique history both past and present.

The City of Unley has created Discover Historic Goodwood, a free self-guided walking tour app which will take you on a journey of Goodwood like no other before. Discover Historic Goodwood will walk you through the strange and intriguing stories of people and buildings past and present along Goodwood Road. Take a leisurely tour to visit 14 stops, listen to soundscapes and  stories by local people and view historical photos to discover the history behind each place. The app is now live. Go to the app store on your phone, download izi.TRAVEL app, work your way through the intro and go to 'all guides' at the bottom of the screen which will reveal Discover Historic Goodwood!
This project is a collaboration between Open Space Contemporary Arts, Alyssa Hill Consulting, Smart Artisans, the vibrant Goodwood community and the City of Unley. Earlier this year we asked our community to share their stories of Goodwood with the assistance of Open Space Contemporary Arts and various artists. We have included 10 such stories in this text, photo and audio tour. 14 pavers entitled Discover Historic Goodwood, manufactured by Smart Artisans, help to guide you round the trail.

Discover Historic Goodwood is part of an ongoing series of historic walking trails, including Discover Historic Unley which we launched in 2014 and the Unley Road Traders’ business history markers in 2016. 
Documentation of these projects can be found at www.unley.sa.gov.au/arts.
