The Bunyip, one of SA’s oldest newspapers, was founded in 1863. It is published every Wednesday circulating in the Council areas of Gawler, Barossa, Light, Playford, Wakefield, Mallala and Clare & Gilbert Valleys.

The Bunyip, based in Gawler, is growing rapidly as the district experiences a massive population and housing boom. Favoured by city commuters, Gawler boasts “the best of town and country”.

The Gawler region retains its country feel, with a wide spread farming community and is the gateway town to the famous Barossa Valley wine region, also experiencing huge growth.  There is an urban feel to the town, but Gawler remains a major regional commercial centre with large shopping centres throughout the district and an extensive educational system.

A focus on equine-related pursuits, including thoroughbred racing, harness racing and leisure based activities on local hobby farms, complements the many sporting clubs.

The Bunyip is part of the Taylor Group of Newspapers, with sister newspapers in SA’s Riverland at Renmark (The Murray Pioneer), Loxton (The Loxton News), Waikerie (The River News) and Pinnaroo (The Border Times).
