Gustav and his Dog Silhouettes

The district felt that these characters epitomized the hardy people who first came to this district and have erected a silhouette at each of the three entrances to the township.

Why not come with your family and visit and then have a picnic in the park?

Above is the Gustav and his dog "on the hill" coming from Kapunda.

Around each display school students have planted blue/grey plants to emphasize the hardy type of plants and surrounds that Gustav had survived in.

The people of the district have been encouraged to plant similar plants in their own property.
