Eudunda Gardens

The residents of Eudunda and District are very proud of their award winning gardens.

One of the highlights in the gardens is the bronze sculpture of Colin Thiele AC with one of the characters in his book, Storm Boy  “Mr Percival” the Pelican. This magnificent life like sculpture was done by Chris Radford.

The Centenary and Memorial Gardens were designed, constructed, planted and cared for by Mr. B. H. (Bert) Aesche, Council Overseer, in 1946.

Both gardens are on land originally leased from the S.A. Railways and then purchased by Council in 1987.

A plaque was installed in 1992 in memory of Bert Aesche for his dedicationand hard work in establishing the gardens.
