The Town of Gawler is a local government area located north of Adelaide city centre in South Australia containing Gawler and its suburbs. The Corporation of the Town of Gawler was established on 9 July 1857 as the residents were not happy that the town area was covered by three different district councils. The Town of Gawler is located within the officially declared boundaries of the Adelaide metropolitan area.[3] The 2001 census of the Town of Gawler LGA determined that 1.0% of the population were Indigenous Australian, and 76.3% were born in Australia. The current Mayor of Gawler is Karen Redman (elected November 2014) who is the first elected female mayor in the town's history.[citation needed]
