Government Gazettes are a unique, useful and extremely fascinating resource for local, family and social historians and researchers in other fields throughout Australia. They were published by the government as a means of communication to officials and the general public and therefore contain information that is of great use in establishing an image of the colony of South Australia and its people in the past. They contain many thousands of names and places and information from a whole cross section of the community.

Issued weekly with occasional special issues, the South Australian Government Gazette contains information such as proclamations, land transactions, court notices, notice of acts, public notices, tenders, appointments and resignations, bankrupt and insolvency notices, impoundments, police auctions, unclaimed letters, licenses (publican’s, wine and beer, storekeeper’s, timber, occupation, and depasturing), notices of protection, dissolution of partnerships, men engaged to work in the whale fisheries, rewards on offer and more ...
