Two Wells  South Australia

As the name implies, Two Wells, the gateway to the Adelaide Plains, was established near the site of two waterholes used for eons by the region’s Aborigines. Early bullockies and shepherds used the holes, lying on the western edge of a limestone knob, to water their stock and the wells were subsequently deepened as the demand grew, fuelled by the transport of ore and goods following the discovery of copper mines in the region. Eventually the wells fell into disuse and were filled in only to be rediscovered in 1967. The heritage walk takes visitors on a circuit of early buildings dating back to the 1860s. Just 40km north of Adelaide, Two Wells also boasts the state’s largest sky-diving club and thrill-seekers can share the adrenaline rush by signing up to jump in tandem with an experienced parachutist. Just a couple of kilometres north of the Gawler River, Two Wells lies on a road which leads directly to Mallala and then on to the Balaklava which is set on the Wakefield River defining the boundary between the Adelaide Plains and the Mid North.
