Local and Family History

The Gawler Heritage Collection is now available in the Cultural Heritage Research Centre, at the Gawler Civic Centre.


This Collection is primarily focused on printed, published and paper-based material specifically relating to the history of Gawler and its region.

The collection also contains photographs, oral histories and original manuscripts. Due to the reference nature of the material, we are unable to make it available for loan.

A catalogue of the Gawler Heritage Collection can be found here

Cataloguing is an ongoing process so if you cannot find what you are looking for please contact us.
