Gawler is a large and historic country town and commercial centre for the Mid-North districts, containing all the relevant services, facilities, community and transport needs to support a growing region. Gawler has traditionally been the regional centre but over recent years has become a preferred location for people to live given the spread of Adelaide and the new northern expressway that has dramatically reduced travel time to Adelaide’s CBD.

Outside of Gawler there is a thriving agricultural community with established enterprises in protected cropping (Horticulture), market gardens, cereal farming, sheep and cattle farming and wine production. The world famous Barossa Valley is only a short drive from Gawler and a must for those with a taste for high quality wine and food.
