We Would Like Historic Stories and Photos Of This District

This present time of uncertainty, where seemingly everything is on pause, provides the opportunity to self-reflect.

Story-telling is just one way that we can continue to connect and learn during this time.

We would love to receive stories and photos from you for the purpose of featuring on our Facebook Page. The potential to create a treasure-trove of stories and personal histories is enormous.

What the photo or story pertains to is up to you. It could be a photo of old farm machinery, the story of a drought, flood or other historic event, or an image of a memento or piece of technology that is no longer in use. The list could go on.

There are only two constraints: the photo, story or memento should have a link to Eudunda or any of the outlying districts, and a sufficient explanation of what a photo, or memento is.

Send your photos and/or stories via Facebook Messenger
to Social Media Editor on the Web Form.

If you have any questions, please feel free to use these channels of communication too.

Get creative, and we look forward to seeing what incredible stories come out of the woodwork!

Eudunda Family Heritage Gallery Looking For Volunteers

You can help the iconic Eudunda Family Heritage Gallery as a volunteer, donate as much time as you can, it is up to you.

Its a great opportunity to learn more about this district, and get to meet some people, or if you are shy; volunteer to do the research and restoration side of the gallery. Use your skills to help the gallery, or learn to use new ones by having a challenge to do so.

Friends of the Gallery Morning Tea 2019 – Well Attended

The Eudunda Town Hall came alive with history enthusiasts on Wednesday 6th Feb when the Friends of the Gallery Morning Tea for 2019 got underway.

Chairperson Peter Horne welcomed a good turnout of members as they celebrated the 20th year that the Eudunda Family Heritage Gallery have been going.

A highlight was to have former residents Max and Jo Duldig and Harry from Adelaide, and Elaine Leditschke from the Barossa attended the morning tea. Eudunda Ward Councilor Debbie Hibbert was also present to support the event.

Eudunda’s Citizen of the year, Peter Herriman cut the cake, after a fair few attempts at lighting the candles (due to the air-conditioning)

Printed photos – some of the School Photos were on display, with notes encouraging everyone to put names to the faces. A slideshow of photos Peter Herriman had taken from 1999 to 2003 was shown in the background  (on the main stage screen), as people talked and reminisced.

Thanks to Roger Schubert for identifying the mystery item – a floor polisher attachment (which dispenses the actual polish) bought in by Jenny Herriman.

During the morning Hedley Scholz gave an update on events and Peter spoke about some of the milestone events coming next year, and how he hoped that some of the members here would be prepared to help in some way. The first task was to get a steering committee going. If you would like to help – please let the Heritage Gallery know.

In 2020 Eudunda will celebrate:

  • 150 years of European Settlement
  • 100th Birthday of Eudunda’s famous author Colin Thiele AC

So if all goes well, there will be a new chapter of history written about Eudunda, as we make it happen.

Here are some photos from the morning.
