Local Authors Featured in Gallery Window

The Eudunda Family Heritage Gallery (EFHG) Management Committee have long promoted the books written by local authors. You can actually drop in to the Gallery and purchase some of them, or even phone and enquire if we have one you are looking for.

As this year is Eudunda’s 150th and Colin Thiele’s 100th Birthday we thought that displaying books from our collection of local authors might be nice.

Of course our most famous and prodigious author is still Colin Thiele with over 100 books published in Australia and many countries around the world, in other languages, and Eudunda is rightly proud to have been part of Colin’s life growing up here, and basing several fiction books on his times here.

WOW! Will you be surprised when you see how many local authors there are and how many books they produced. Take note that the photos of the windows display only include a couple of Colin’s books, all the display is made up of our other authors, so it really does show just how important our Galleries collection is.

Some of these books are for sale too. We are working on a list of the books and an online shop so you can purchase them (those that are for sale).

Eudunda Heritage – ANZAC 2020 – April Windows Display

April’s Window Dressing has usually featured an ANZAC theme and at the Eudunda Family Heritage Gallery this year we see that tradition has been carried on. This year, because of the COVID-19 Pandemic, not only is the Heritage Gallery closed at the moment, but it has had a major impact on ANZAC Celebrations.

If you are a Facebook user you can read some great stories about Eudunda Service Personnel writing home to family and friends during World War I.

Eudunda Heritage Gallery – Thank You Firies

The Eudunda Family Heritage Gallery front windows  have a new display each month thanks to our talented Committee Chairperson Delilah Balmer.

For January we acknowledge the great work our Firies ave done over the last couple months. Thankfully not much in our area, but sadly in many other places of Australia, with some of our local volunteers venturing off to places like Kangaroo Island where some third of the Island was devastated by fire.

We also wish to acknowledge all the volunteers in various emergency services who put in so much time for out community.

If you are going past, don’t forget to stop and check it out our window. If the doors are open, please come in, browse around and have a chat if you like.
