Looking Back with the Bunyip: Wednesday 30th March
Looking back at Gawler’s history through the columns of the Bunyip Newspaper with Janette and Kay Boon from Wednesday 30th March 2022
150 years ago, The Bunyip reported on a violent incident involving children and guns, 100 years ago the remarkable service of a local “Financial Secretary” was honoured, 50 years ago the new student council at Gawler High was making news, 25 years ago local social problems were causing concern, and 10 years ago the trains were about to start running again.
The Gawler Now and Then image is of Trevu House, 1960
