    Another lovely old building in historic Gawler. Located near one of the main shopping malls, so check out while nearby. Well worth a look

    It connects you to nature and gets you off of your screens and you can ride bikes and scooters and bring the family for a walk.

    Unfortunately I accidentally deliberately missed our train connection, meaning we had to pause in the cafe' and have coffee and a look at the heritage photos. Wife did not complain. A worthwhile place to visit if you like South Australian history and good coffee.

    In the lead up to this Christmas I attended a club break up dinner at this excellent new function centre. The dining room is large, with big picture windows and a good-sized bar. My group enjoyed good Christmas fare, and those of us who had the barramundi agreed that it was delicious. A great venue.... I wish management every success!

    Small but varied collection on two floors clearly still being set up and with some nice displays. It’s open on some weekday afternoons for a small fee. The building itself is probably the most interesting feature, being the historic former telegraph station built of local stone.

    The scenery may not be stunning but the track is in good shape and the length good so getting your exercise quota quite achievable. The track follows the length of the Northern Expressway and is pretty well flat so its an easier ride for some, but the length out and back can be challenging is its windy

    i go here regularly and enjoy what it has to offer. the skatepark can be packed at peak hours but depending on the majority of the ages at the skatepark can either make it a whole lot better or worse. the park is quite clean and safe and is even the areas around is are a very nice place to take a brisk walk. the photos given do not do the skatepark and justice as the park itself wasn't even shown in any preview photos sadly, so you're just going to have to take my anonymous and for all you know untrustworthy opinion on it.

    Jodie is incredible at what she does. I would definitely recommend indulging in one of her amazing massages to look after yourself! Jodie is very accommodating and I felt extremely safe going to Jodie after a long break due to medical issues. She was supportive and understanding. Treat yourself, you won't regret it.

    Had a little trouble locating this place as they have moved out of the arcade and are located three minutes away in the main street. The facade keeps the original historic facade of a Gawler department store from the late 1800's. The facilities are absolutely modern and provided me, a male, with fantastic first experience with spray tanning. Staff were very friendly and professional.The private spray tanning booth was clean and functional.
