Looking Back with the Bunyip: Wednesday 29th March
Looking back at Gawler’s history through the columns of the Bunyip Newspaper with Janette and Kay from Wednesday 29th March 2023
150 years ago the Bunyip reported on a prolific yield of wheat, 100 years ago the shortage of teachers is remarked on in the Cit Column, 50 years ago the Gawler Mill was sold to a city developer, 25 years ago there is overwhelming support for a Trinity development, and 10 years ago high regional unemployment is causing concern.
The Gawler Now and Then image is of Oaklands, McKinlay Ave, Gawler East 1872
