Gawler is the first centre of significance after leaving Adelaide. Gawler is also the southern entrance town to the Barossa Valley and the famous SA Wine Region. Gawler is also an old town with a great heritage record. Gawler also a great spot for an extended stopover.
The town plan was devised by the colonial surveyor William Light, and was the only town planned by him other than Adelaide. William Jacob used Light's plans and laid out the town.
When visiting. Gawler be sure to check out the area of the city that is the battle of the church faiths. The Anglican and Catholic just 50 mtrs apart and both cathedral in style. The Anglican has the edge because it is open to the public. Donít miss the church. Tucked in behind the traditional parts of the church is this quilt. Magnificent.
