Things to do in Willunga
Explore Willunga like a local and make a trip to the Willunga Farmer’s Market, located on the corner of High St and Main Rd. You can shop locally-sourced organic produce and local handicrafts, then find a spot to sit back and relax with a coffee and people-watch the day away.
For a dose of history, the Willunga National Trust houses the Willunga Courthouse and Willunga Slate Museum. The courthouse accurately recreates justice from the late 1800s and the Slate Museum is a stark portrayal of the Cornish miners that used to work there.
