The Exchange in recent years has transformed into a Gawler institution of good times, becoming the centre point of celebrations and events in the town.

Murray’s BBQ and Bar offers a unique dining experience in a modern yet rustic bar and bistro setting, our sports bar is the perfect little spot for casual get togethers and small celebrations and our roofgarden / deck area is our new hero with beautiful open air panoramic surrounds, a completely retractable roof and big screen TV.

We look forward to helping you celebrate your next event at our hotel, and showing you the kind of hospitality we would show you in our home
