Gawler & Barossa Jockey Club

The Gawler & Barossa Jockey Club is a racecourse located in Evanston, nearby Gawler and located close enough to the Barossa to be named as such :) The wedding ceremony location is usually a cute little rotunda, located nearby the main reception hall, while there is a handy under-cover pavillion with beautiful large wine barrels just in case of inclement weather. The reception hall itself boasts a huge, modern area for entertaining a very large guest list, but can also be partitioned off in case you’d like something more intimate.

A great drawcard of the Gawler & Barossa Jockey Club is that for your wedding photos you’re allowed on the track itself – not many other racecourses allow you to do this as it may damage the grass. If you’re a fan of horse racing this would be a big draw card for you! Otherwise photo-wise you’d have to make do with the large barrels on display and the small patch of grass near the rotunda.
