Gawler’s maps take us on an exciting journey through Kaurna territory, native vegetation and landscape, from exploration to the town’s settlement. The display covers the 1839 Special Survey, the Light Finniss & Co Gawlertown map of 1839 and subsequent growth. View the development of train lines and the horse-drawn tram, twentieth-century wartime maps, cemeteries and other features. The maps will be displayed at the launch of a public map database at the Gawler Civic Centre. Includes historic maps from the Gawler Cultural Heritage Collection. Maps will remain on display for two weeks after the event opening launch. Bookings required for opening launch only.
