Gawler, SA

Gawler is a thriving metropolis on the northern outskirts of Adelaide, part of the internationally renown Barossa wine region.


It was traditionally indigenous Aboriginal Kauma lands. The town was planned by Colonel William Light and developed into a bustling industrial centre when first established producing James Martin locomotives and ironwork through local foundries.

Visit the Gawler Museum, housed in the Old Telegraph Office, home to artefacts dating back to the region’s pioneer days. Or take in the Church Hill State Heritage Area which includes historic churches.
