Spend a day on a bargain hunt
It's on again on the first Saturday of November. Kapunda will hold their annual town garage sale day once again on Saturday 3rd November and it will be bigger and better than ever. Garage Sales begin at 8am. Please do not arrive earlier.

With around 75 garage sales last year, it is expected to be over that amount this year. On your way into town, stop by the big statue of Map the Miner and pick up your map of the town with all the garages sales marked. There is a small donation for the map. Here you will also find the local fundraisers up bright and early cooking a takeaway breakfast BBQ to fuel you up for your morning of bargain hunting. Maps are also available at the STOP signs on the Clare road entry to the town. Later in the day, you can get one at the Visitor Information Centre.

If you are intending to come up for the day, please bring small notes and coins to help the stallholders out. Also, some carry bags and boxes could be helpful. Many people are seen whizzing about over town with trailers and utes filed with furniture and other purchases.
I do love a food garage sale day and always seem to find plenty of unique country wares here. You may also find homewares, garden supplies, tools, books, plants, kids toys and general stuff from the shed. There is something for everyone. For locals who only have a small selection, they have banded together to hire a table each at the indoor area at the Trotting Track on Hancock Road.

For a lunch break, you can try one of the two bakeries in town, a local cafe or grab a counter meal at the pub. Kapunda is 31 kms from the turnoff on the Sturt Highway on the Gawler Bypass. For quick access from Adelaide and northern suburbs take the Northern Expressway.
