Meadows Things to Do
Meadows is another town that is worth walking the main street [Mawson road]. Lined with many heritage buildings, it is quite a nice walk. The Town has a board where you can read about the history of the town.
At the beginning of my walk, I came across was Gaslights Antique Gallery, a great little shop!
Next, and still on the same side of the road, was St Georges' Anglican Church which opened for services in 1870, and the Meadows Bakery, food looked yummy, but was way to early for morning tea!
Across the road, was the Meadow's Uniting Church, a much newer looking Church and the Oddfellows Hall, which is now an Art Gallery. It had a very interesting garden, including a Scarecrow! There are many old homes from the 1800's, some with very thick stone walls that I don't think will ever fall down!Related to:

Favorite thing: All around the area of Meadows, is Dairy farms. Lush green pastures, gum trees, dams for water, milking sheds and plenty of Cows, Calves and a few Bulls.
On the corner of Brookmand and Mawson road, as you head from Meadows to Kangarilla, is a Dairy farm that always has cute little calves.
I had to pull up on the side of the road, and take a photo of these cuties!Related to:

Favorite thing: Located in the main street of Meadows, is this Butchers Shop. Freshly killed local meat all displayed nicely looked very enticing to buy for a BBQ lunch.
I also asked if they sold "Bung Fritz,' a South Australian food icon. Sure they did, so happily I walked out of the shop with my stick of Fritz!
What is Bung Fritz. Well, it is made from a base of Pork with some Beef, and is cooked and lightly smoked. The original traditional recipe is still being used. It is 66% meat. Nice fried, bbqed, eaten fresh, lots of things you can do with Bung Fritz.
ONLY AVAILABLE IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA.Related to:

Favorite thing: I love Red Gum Trees, and I am not the only one. Artist's love painting them as they are full of character and colour.
When I was at Meadows, a lovely Red Gum on the edge of Meadows township was shedding its bark. The colour under was stunning, a bright orange/red, so nice that I just had to stop and take a photo of this beautiful tree.Related to:
