It’s a beautiful clean ground with excellent facilities and good views of the ground from any vantage point. Bars are great. TV screens everywhere. Bad luck my team didn’t win tonight however!” – Roger Antoniazzi
Amazing ground that has been upgraded without losing the history and original features that made it so special to begin with. Tours conducted day and night, even if you just want to check it out quickly you can walkthrough and see the pitch as well as a little history about the ground for free. Highly recommended.” – Iain Hall

Adelaide City Mosque

The Adelaide Mosque is the oldest surviving mosque in Australia and the first to be built in an Australian city. Erected in 1888–89, it was designed to meet the spiritual needs of Muslim cameleers and traders coming in from work in South Australia’s northern regions.
Originally named as ‘Afghan Chapel’, this building is reputedly the oldest permanent mosque in Australia. The building is of national significance and one of the few relics of Afghan immigration to South Australia which embodies Afghan and Islamic culture. Initially founded by a group of Afghan and North Indian camel riders, the mosque dates back to 1888-1889 with the four distinctive minarets added in 1903.

Wesley Uniting Church

Wesley Uniting Church  has always sought to maintain a mission of outreach. As the urban development of Adelaide expanded new churches were required. Members of Wesley Church congregation were influential in the establishment of the Hackney Mission, East Adelaide Methodist Church (Spicer Memorial) and Rose Park Methodist Church (Gartrell Memorial).

In the 1960’s, the congregation established and administered the retirement village, Kingsborough Homes, on two sites, one behind the church in Grenfell Street, now known as College Green, and the other in William Street, Norwood. These homes now form part of Eldercare.

For twenty years just after its inception, the congregation of the Austral Asian Church of South Australian worshipped in this place and in recent times the church has become home to the Norwood Preaching Centre of the Chinese Methodist Church.
