Our Community

Gawler was South Australia’s first country town and it is situated at the junction of the North and South Para Rivers. The town has the flat Adelaide Plains to the west and the Barossa Ranges to the east.

The country atmosphere makes Gawler a pleasant and enjoyable place to live. The majority of our district is within one hour of the city of Adelaide with easy access with the Northern Expressway.  The Adelaide to Gawler rail service has express services which can mean as little as a 40 minute commute from Gawler into the heart of the City.  Adelaide Metro now offer several bus circuits within Gawler.

The current population of Gawler is around 23,000 and with new urban growth areas planned for Gawler and its surrounding districts this is set to increase considerably.

Shopping is well catered for with many big name retailers operating in Gawler and other shopping centres such as Munno Para and Elizabeth only minutes drive away. 

Private colleges, public and religious schools, pre-school centres and kindergartens cater for our children.

There are a variety of sporting organisations in the area including a recently redeveloped horse racing facility.  Lots of picnic areas, parks, cycle and walking trails add to Gawler’s fantastic lifestyle.

Within 40 minutes of Adelaide, a 20 minute casual drive from the world renowned Barossa Valley wine district and one hours drive away from the Yorke Peninsula and the Murray River, Gawler is truly ideally located.
