Larry and Kathy
LARRY and Kathy Cavallaro, formally of ZEEBOUS fame, have officially
opened the doors of their new ‘La Provençale’ restaurant.
It is the fourth time that Larry and Kathy have ventured to “hang out the
shingle” in Gawler and this time it’s back to basics.
The refurbished restaurant located in the Gawler Mill complex at 1 Julian
Terrace, facing the river, features a new menu based on rustic French cooking
and provides a different approach to traditional mainstream dining.
“I started my cooking career training in Melbourne and working at Frenchy’s,
La Brochette, The Bullfrog and the Lamplighter – all famous restaurants in
their day,” Larry said.
“It was at these places that I developed a love for provincial French cuisine
or ‘rustic peasant food’ as it was called in those days. So I am hoping that
together with my new team we can make La Provençale in Gawler a little bit
Mr Cavallaro said the motivation behind the venture was the ongoing
redevelopment happening at the bottom end of Murray Street as an
entertainment precinct as this will strengthen Gawler’s capacity to not only
address the needs and demands of the Gawler community but also add value
to Gawler’s overall appeal as a food and entertainment destination.
“We are excited about getting a good team together to expand what Gawler
has to offer given that growth prospects are strong.
“Gawler’s dine-out market is well serviced, but we see the demand growing
for that inspirational and delightful dining experience.”

THE Gawler Rotary Village Fair
enjoyed another year of success
with several local groups and
organisations saying Saturday’s
event was the best yet.
A sizeable crowd entered Pioneer
Park and was treated to a wide selec-
tion of food, items and entertain-
ment, with a snake catcher and jazz
band amongst the popular features at
As always, spirits were high and
were not dampened, even when a
few stray tents were picked up and
blown over in the wind towards the
end of the event.
Rotary Club member Kim Potger
said it was good to receive some posi-
tive feedback from those involved.
“That’s when you really feel good
about the whole thing, because you
know the work that the volunteers
do is worth it,” Mr Potger said.
“Hopefully, groups that have
found that it has been successful for
them will come back next year big-
ger and stronger and other groups
can join us too.”
Mr Potger also said next year’s
event may include some additional
“We discussed a few things that
didn’t quite happen this year that
could potentially happen next year,”
“We will look at what we’ve got
and keep building on it, which is
what we’ve done for years.
“You’ve always got to come up
with something a little different.”
Another highlight of the day was
the opportunity for the public to
visit the historic Gawler Freemasons
hall and lodge, which was open as
part of the festivities.
