The Exchange Hotel, 155 Murray Street, Gawler, South Australia, was first licensed in 1868, with Mr Theodore Kneese the nominated Licensee.
The Exchange was originally a single storey building with the Licensee and family residing below the Hotel in rather unique and spacious surroundings.
Although much of the below ground furnishings have long since disappeared the old wood stove, in what was once the kitchen, still remains.
Gawler in the early 1900’s represented a day’s travel by horse and cart from Adelaide, and, to accommodate the needs of the weary traveller, another story was added to the Exchange Hotel.
Licensees of the Exchange have been many, but is worth noting that the Mulligan’s who held the Licence from April 1925 until April 1964, actually brewed and sold their own beer on the premises. Unfortunately all that remains of the beer is a single bottle label.
The Exchange has undergone many changes over the years. In the 1980’s the then Licensee, Peter Holness, acquired the adjoining Murrays Motor Cycle Shop and transformed it into a Licensed Bottle Shop.
In 2015 the Hotel underwent a renovation & expansion including for the first time a commercial kitchen, seated dining & a roof garden.
