Looking Back with the Bunyip: Wednesday 23rd March
Looking back at Gawler’s history through the columns of the Bunyip Newspaper with Janette and Kay Boon from Wednesday 23rd March 2022
150 years ago a local court case was reported on 100 years ago St Patrick’s Day celebrations were making news, 50 years ago Dr Eastick stepped down as Mayor, 25 years ago a local school had a controversial stand on pot and 10 years ago an art instillation designed to separate Gawler from the suburbs was in the planning stage.
