Description:Historic Church on a Hill With its first foundation stone laid in 1847, this beautiful Church of England/Anglican church building in Gawler, South Australia was built at the substantial cost of 800 Pounds. It was constructed gradually and improved upon over the following 60-plus years. Where possible, bluestone and sandstone were utilised from local quarries with Welsh slate being used for the roof. St George’s Church was finally dedicated in 1909 and eight hemispherical bells were added to the church tower in 1921. It remains an important part of Gawler’s spiritual and cultural history today. Visitors are welcome and tours can be arranged by contacting the church office. Gawler is just under one hour’s drive north of Adelaide along a major road, and is at the gateway to the Barossa Valley. It is well serviced by public transport and has ample shopping and accommodation options. Trev and Chris Barre
