Looking Back with the Bunyip: Wednesday 6th April
Looking back at Gawler’s history through the columns of the Bunyip Newspaper with Janette and Kay Boon from Wednesday 6th April 2022
150 years ago, The Bunyip reported on a cart accident, 100 years ago the paper ran a story about the welcome autumn rains, 50 years ago a thief was caught out, 25 years ago a new community facility was announced, and 10 years ago a story about siblings being reunited was featured.
The Gawler Now and Then image is of the first official visitor to Gawler East Primary School in October 1985
