Planning an Event

Our City is recognised for its vibrant community spirit, quality lifestyle choices, diversity, business strength and innovative leadership.
Many of our residents are energetic participants in social and recreational activities and enjoy being active and involved in our community.
Attraction and facilitation of community events are primary goals for the City of Unley, with place making and cultural and artistic diversity being strategic objectives within our Community Plan 2033 and our 4 Year Plan.
