Stonyfell is an eastern suburb in the foothills of Adelaide, Australia, within the council area of the City of Burnside. It has parks with walking tracks, waterfalls and bike tracks. St Peter's Collegiate Girls' School is the only school in Stonyfell.

The historic Stonyfell Winery, founded by Henry Clark and Joseph Crompton gave the suburb its name. The land was taken over by quarry operator Henry Dunstan, then H. M. Martin and Son, is one of Australia's oldest. There is also a quarry that has been working since the late 19th century.

Stonyfell Creek arises on the eastern border of Stonyfell, flowing through several suburbs before joining Second Creek.
