Two Wells

Two Wells, historic town gateway to the Adelaide Plains, southern gateway to Clare Valley and Yorke Peninsula, named after two Aboriginal wells on the western edge of a limestone knoll found by the early teamsters and shepherds who first came to the area. Later they were deepened to form a supply of water for all who drove stock through to the copper mines as well as the stock on lease that ran from the Gawler River to the Hummocks. When farmers took up the land around 1854, those near the knoll used the wells as their water supply and finally the walls of one were bricked up and the other walled with stone. Windlass and buckets were added and used until water was piped to the area at the turn of the century and the wells were filled in and forgotten. The historical wells were rediscovered in 1967.
