Gawler Rivers Walk: In Light's Footsteps
The rivers in Gawler were central to the life and culture of local Kaurna people living in the region. In 1839, William Light undertook the Gawler Special Survey and planned Gawlertown based on its position - the first overnight stop for travel from Adelaide to future farming and transport in the north, Barossa and River Murray. Industries – flourmills, foundries, brewing, bluestone for building, gas production for lighting and water supply, feature on the walk and many historic housing styles. This history, flora and fauna will be on display. 3km walk, return transport available for refreshments and other festival events.
