Looking Back with the Bunyip: Thursday 13th April
Looking back at Gawler’s history through the columns of the Bunyip Newspaper with Janette and Kay from Thursday 13th April 2023 (Paper came out one day late due to Easter)
150 years ago the Bunyip reported on the opening of the Baptist Church, 100 years ago counterfeit coins were appearing in Gawler, 50 years ago the survivor of a heart attack was welcomed in Gawler, 25 years ago the road toll was raising concern, and 10 years ago Holden factory is reported as “Holden on”.
The Gawler Now and Then image is of the Opening of the Gawler Post Office 1973
