Gawler is the picturesque hub of a prosperous agriculture region. It was the location of the hit television series ‘McLeod’s Daughters’. Gawler is 44km north of Adelaide and is on the main routes from the Murray and Barossa. It offers the best of town and country. Temperatures vary from an average high of 29 degrees in summer to an average high of 14 degrees in winter.

Gawler is the oldest country town established in South Australia in 1839. It is named after the second governor of the colony, George Gawler. The town of Gawler was designed by Colonel Light, who was also responsible for planning Adelaide except that Gawler differs from Adelaide’s grid plan as it is triangular rather than square due to topographical features.

Gawler has modern shopping complexes, two swimming centres, skate park, golf course and many lovely parks and gardens. And the Barossa vineyards are less than 30 minutes away. The largest rose garden in the southern hemisphere is found in the town of Lyndoch.

Gawler is on the main metropolitan train line. Limited buses are available from the railway station to surrounding locations. Gawler also has a publicly subsidised mini bus service, which will pick up and deliver people to their door within the Gawler and Roseworthy areas.
