Roseworthy SA


Postcode: 5371

Roseworthy is a small town in South Australia, about 10 km north of Gawler. Like other towns in the area, Roseworthy is attracting new residents who are discovering that they can commute to work, while enjoying the country town lifestyle.

Roseworthy has a large grain storage facility consisting of both storage silos and bunkers for grain grown in the surrounding areas, and grain is collected by rail to be taken to Port Adelaide for export.

The Roseworthy campus of the University of Adelaide, including the Murray Institute of TAFE, is west of the town. It is well-known for training winemakers, but also teaches other agricultural science subjects.

Roseworthy is in the Light Regional Council, the state electoral district of Light and the federal Division of Wakefield.
