Country But With Amenities So Close

We chose Woodvale Gawler South as the blocks there provide the perfect blend of country atmosphere with city convenience, and provide an ambiance that is perfect to start our lives together. We can’t wait to live in and really get to experience the best parts of the Woodvale Estate.

Country But With Amenities So Close

Our family bought two allotments, the location had a feeling that you were in the country but with amenities so close. Gawler has a great feel and is vibrant and the people of Gawler are so welcoming and friendly. This is a great place for us to retire and our son’s family to bring up their children.

Beautiful Spot and Scenery

We brought our land at Woodvale Karen Hughes was amazing to deal with everything went smoothly. Karen had great knowledge of the Stage 4 at Woodvale. Very pleased. Would recommend anyone to buy land here. Beautiful spot and scenery.

Views Are Beautiful

What appeal to me the most about this development was that it was close to Gawler but with the views and feel of a small country settlement. The views are beautiful and the development as been well planned and maintained. The frequent updates throughout the development process has been appreciated and made me feel apart of this growing community, just a few minutes from the hustle and bustle of Gawler.

What Attracted Us

It was the larger blocks and the quiet semi-rural location close to One Tree Hill Road that attracted us to Woodvale

Smooth Process for Us First Home Buyers

We have always loved Woodvale and always dreamed of purchasing our first block of land. We didn’t realise how easy the process would be. The team at Elders made this a smooth process for us first home buyers, especially Karen. We would like to thank you and can’t wait to start building in this beautiful area.

We Fell In Love

We were driving in the area and fell in love with the place. Karen from Elders was fantastic. Her knowledge and understanding of the area and blocks was second to none. We felt very relaxed through the process.

Testimonial - Cribbes


We have been looking at the development of Woodvale for quite some time and like the way it is progressing with serene surroundings and a rural feel yet not far away from city amenities. We were impressed with Woodvale information pack which answered immediate questions of available services and future developments. All these points encouraged us to make the move to Woodvale.

Making our Dream Come True

We fell in love with the development as soon as we found it. The views are stunning and it was the first time we both agree on an area! Dealing with Karen was flawless and she was so helpful with everything we went through. She always went above and beyond! Thank you for making our dream come true.

A Really Nice Location

Living locally my entire life and working in Gawler, Woodvale seemed like the appropriate choice. Close to both Gawler and the surrounding towns as well as only a 45 minute drive to the city via the back roads or the expressway makes it a really nice location. Especially for a first home buyer and someone who has been used to the rural and town lifestyles at the same time.

Can't wait to build

The whole experience of purchasing our first block of land was made easy. Karen was extremely helpful and answered every question we had from our first enquiry onwards. As well as providing extensive information and details of builders. The process wasn’t nearly as stressful as we thought it would be. We can’t wait to start building in this picturesque estate our first home.

Picturesque Setting is Country

I’m extremely happy with my decision to buy land at Woodvale. This picturesque setting is country living but still close to modern conveniences. Buying land at Woodvale has been such an easy and pleasurable experience thanks to Karen from Elders. A very knowledgeable and professional agent.

Best Decision!

Buying in Woodvale to build our dream has been the best decision, especially now seeing the development take shape into a quite country feel with high end beautiful homes. It has us so excited to be a part of this gorgeous way of living.

Congratulations Nicole!

Couldn't be Happier

Moving to Woodvale was allowing me to be closer to work and also family. It was an easy decision to make with the great views Woodvale has to offer. Working with Karen to overcome an issue with a tree was a small bump along the way, but I could not be happier with all the help I received by Karen to make sure I was happy with the block.

Nicole Smart


So happy to choose Woodvale not once but twice

I’ve been so happy to choose Woodvale not once but twice. The development has really taken shape as was promised and has been synonymous with other quality developments like Golden Grove that were always liked.  I found Karen to be helpful and pleasant helping me through the process once again. We look forward to the future at Woodvale.

Secluded Stages and Elevated Allotments with Definite Prestige Feel

We were new  in Adelaide and on the lookout for a block over 800 m² so our choices within proximity of the Edinburgh RAAF base  were somewhat limited. Between Two Wells, Angle Vale and Woodvale we had no doubts that with its smaller secluded stages and elevated lots with a definite prestige feel that Woodvale was our choice.

I had a list as long as my arm for the Two Wells rep about rural based restrictions (chicken coops etc) the frontage design of the estate etc etc and the rep wasn't hugely interested. It really put me off.

Now I realise in hindsight, things like the estate frontage design and other such 'questions' fell by the wayside when it came to Woodvale, Gawler because after our first meeting with Karen I just felt it was 1) the 'right' place for us and 2) she knew her stuff. So I then knew any silly questions I might've had later (like about postal services!!) Karen would be onto it!

Karen from Elders was immediately contactable and extremely knowledgeable with all matters and  questions (as opposed to Two Wells reps who had no idea about their estate) and even helped us find the right builder for us and our allotment.  Gawler and Woodvale greatly appeal to our open plan Australian living ideals.

Generous Allotment

A central location to the Barossa and Adelaide that allowed us to enjoy a generous allotment that wasn’t available in other estates. Amazing view with a choice of allotments of different gradients. Karen has been more than supportive through the entire process and will certainly be a person to call for help in building our home.

Exciting Times

After signing up on our block in a paddock it has been an amazing transformation into the block it is today, it is what we were hoping for.

Coming from a rural area to our new block and still having a rural back drop from our block this will have a great outlook for us.

We are moving to Gawler to be closer to our daughters and grandchildren.

We are downsizing but the larger blocks at Woodvale still give us the feeling of room around us. Also we will not have homes stacked on top of us and we will keep some amazing views.

Now we move into the next stage of building and seeing what is built around us. It is exciting times  as it all comes together. I would also like to thank Karen  on keeping us informed and up to date  on the progress over the last year.

Rural Feel and Fantastic View

After living in the Barossa Valley this was the only development that was just out of town that has the rural feel and views with reasonable size blocks.

Gorgeous Views & Country Feel

We were attracted to Woodvale by the gorgeous views, the country feel but yet the closeness to the town and all amenities.  The block sizes you see at Woodvale plus the views is something rare to find!

Thank you Karen of Elders Gawler for being such a pleasure to deal with through the whole process.

Unique Country Setting with Lovely Views

We are locals to Gawler and when we decided that we need to downsize our house but wanted a decent size block we looked at Woodvale, Gawler South. Its unique country setting with lovely views only a few minutes out of Gawler made it an easy decision.

Thank you Karen – we very much appreciate your help in our land purchase and keeping us informed of the progress along the way.

We are now looking forward to the next stage of building on our beautiful block.

Perfect Block in Perfect Location

Recent purchasers Rick and Ann Williams share their experience in purchasing their ideal allotment in a perfect location in Woodvale’s Stage 2.

“A brochure left in our mail box, advertising land at Woodvale (Stage 2 release) initially caught our interest. We decided to take a look and after one walk around, we found the perfect block in the perfect location. The area is best described as country living, but in reality, only a short drive to the Gawler town centre. We would like to thank Karen for her assistance with the purchase of land at Woodvale. She has kept in touch with regular updates, every step of the way. We really enjoyed the Sundowner event that took place in the new Scott Salisbury Display Home at Woodvale, last December.”

Rick and Ann Williams


Ideal combination of town and country

Having lived on an 11 acre property on the Gawler outskirts for many years and wanted to downsize.  I looked for a residential allotment that wouldn’t give me the feeling of being hemmed in a residential area and would make the transition from country to town easily.  It was in Woodvale that that I believe I found the solution.

It was via the Bunyip (October 2013) that I was first alerted to the new Woodvale development at Gawler South.  I registered my interest as soon as that was possible.

My reasons for purchasing at Woodvale were:

  • Close to Gawler facilities
  • Ideal combination of country and town environment
  • Reasonably small estate divided by reserves/creeks and surrounded by mature gum trees
  • Comparable land prices
  • Large allotments

Planned Perfectly

I could not be more excited to have purchased our dream block in the new Woodvale estate.  The entire process has been a pleasure.  From the very beginning Karen was happy to chat with me about my options. Was also able to have the assistance of the developers prior to committing to purchase the block. I felt really comfortable going into this purchase.  The estate has been planned perfectly to keep that country style living whilst creating what will hopefully be a close knit community.

The options in Woodvale are endless. A huge thank you to the team at Elders for making this such a joyous experience so far.

Ideal Investment

Nicole Smart always had a sense that Gawler was where she wanted to be and choosing Woodvale as a place to build her new home was just the next step.

“Moving to Gawler was always something I wanted to do” says Ms Smart. “When I saw the Woodvale development on with its great views, it felt just right - located in the country but only minutes away from the main street.”

Ms Smart recalls popping into the Elders Office on Murray Street not long after seeing Woodvale online to speak to Sales Consultant, Karen Hughes.

“Karen answered all of my questions. I took a few days to think things through and saw that it was a great investment opportunity and place to live, with the location and all the work being done around the estate being of a high standard.”

Block sizing was perfect for our needs

Having lived in Gawler for over 25 years and building twice in the Evanston Park area we were drawn to moving to Woodvale.  The block sizing was perfect for our needs.  Woodvale offers a community whilst at the same time keeping the country feel that we are looking for.  Having access all shopping facilities locally was a big plus.

Aesthetically Pleasing

As soon as I saw the land at 'Woodvale', I knew that this was the place to live in Gawler. It has picturesque views and conveniently located close to the main street, shops and schools. The development has attracted quality builders, which build houses to endure the test of time as well as being aesthetically pleasing. In summer, I prefer the evening breeze of the hills, rather than the still of the plains.

Woodvale is well priced and I'm elated that I've found such a beautiful place to live. Many thanks to Karen Hughes of Elders Real Estate for helping my dream come true.

The Rural Setting and Views are so Beautiful

Our land at Woodvale recently settled and we are looking forward to commencing building very soon.  We bought the land for an investment property, but we wish we had bought a larger allotment for a home of our own.  The rural setting and views are so beautiful and yet it is ridiculously close to everything you could possibly need in Gawler.  It really has the best of both worlds. The pretty hillside location has set it apart from the average over-populated and rather bland land developments currently on offer.  The after settlement present from the developer was very generous and a lovely surprise. We now look forward to watching things take shape over the coming months.

Woodvale has a block that suits everyone

Jayne and Ben Gerritts chose a traditional sized allotment for themselves and their three children close to one of the wooded reserves that Woodvale has to offer.

“Without a doubt, we were after a new area that offered the best spot in Gawler . We are so excited about beginning building now, and have seen the area change from a rural property into a first class development” says Mrs Gerritt.

“Ben and I wanted to be able to get in and out of Gawler quickly and be able to drop off and pick up the kids from their primary school on time.   We didn’t  want to choose something too far out of Gawler, because the location was just right for us.  Gawler South is a great suburb, and with the opportunity to choose a good sized block, we instantly knew we wanted to build here. Karen Hughes of Elders Real Estate helped us through the whole process.”

“We think it’s great that Woodvale has a block that suits everyone.”

Also, just so you know, that area is a special spot for me as I can remember going up there and sitting on the back of the Ute with my dad watching the Gawler 3 day Event every year it was on.

I love the smell of the gums and the way the breeze blows down the Gully.  I feel like I have my own bit of Country living with the added advantage of schools and shops nearby.

Surprise set within the Hills of Gawler

Woodvale is undoubtedly a surprise set within the hills of Gawler. Therefore, the decision to build my home on such a large block set amongst tree lined roads and the hills so close to Gawler's Main Street was an easy one! The views are spectacular and are something that dont come with building down on the flat land surrounding Gawler. The natural country landscape that surrounds Woodvale is stunning and has such a relaxed feel about it, and will be the perfect place to build my dream home.

We never looked past Woodvale, with its beautiful natural surrounds

Geoff and Jean Mead were one of the first purchasers to secure their allotment in Stage 1 at Woodvale, Gawler South.

Coming from Houghton in the Adelaide Hills, and after raising a family, who have all grown up now with families of their own, they find that the closeness of friends and family have attracted them to make the move to Gawler South. Often passing the Gawler-One Tree Hill Road to see the progress of the development, Geoff and Jean have been planning to build their new home at Woodvale for some time.

“We never looked past Woodvale, with its beautiful natural surrounds, and services like mains gas it was clearly the location we wanted to enjoy our retirement, and become part of the Gawler community.” says Mrs Mead.

As a mature couple the Mead’s were looking for a property that offered them a manageable block , close to Gawler.  Having run a business in Gawler for many years, they knew the choice was clear in selecting Gawler South to base themselves for the future.

Mrs Mead said “We’ve been impressed with the development from the beginning, and we’re looking forward to the new reserves and landscaping to complete the picture. The Bentley Development Group have done a great job and we can definitely see Woodvale growing into something really special.”

“Geoff and I would really recommend having a chat with Karen Hughes, Woodvale Sales Consultant. You can discover how Karen can help you find the right spot just like we have.”

Tree Setting Lures Olivia

Olivia George is no stranger to taking an adventurous journey. At first glance she is not the stereotypical person you would expect to find driving trucks in the mining areas of Roxby Downs,  however, Olivia is now taking on the journey into home ownership at Woodvale.

Ms George was driving along the Gawler - One Tree Hill Road where she discovered the secret of Woodvale. “I loved the setting amongst the trees and hills because I thought once established it would be a beautiful area to live. Just a short drive to the Township of  Gawler with everything you need close by. What I love most about Woodvale is that it will  be a lifestyle that embraces nature and open space with tree-lined streets adding  character to the area.”

She hopes to start building early in the new year and no doubt will enjoy the natural settings of Woodvale as a stark contrast to her working environment.

Woodvale Congraluates First Purchasers

The Bonnici’s are currently working on their dream house plans and are looking forward to  moving into their new home. “For Chris and I the views and size of the allotments were important and Woodvale had it all.  Including its location being as close to the heart of Gawler as possible, and that it has easy access to Trinity College. We are close to Chris’ work at Aussie Home Loans and the kids are not far from school and with the new shops at Gawler Green we are close to everything we need.”

Most of all the Bonnici’s have purchased a large allotment  so that their children, Sebastian and Jasmine, and even their dog have a large space to play.  Having the nearby reserves means they can all enjoy some great natural space.

“The established trees here and the surrounds give the area a real country feel.  Yet it is close to the main centre of town. The established trees add a real natural quality to the area not available anywhere else in Gawler.” Lisa said.
