Where will our next gathering be in 2023?

Having met with the host committee a couple of weeks ago, I was delighted to see and meet such an enthusiastic group of ladies at their ‘brainstorming’ session. There was plenty of ideas and suggestions and am confident that this year’s SA Rural Women’s Gathering will provide plenty of interest things to do and experience within their beautiful sea side town. I’m really looking forward to seeing their new programme when it comes out in June.

In saying this, I am calling for host towns to take up the challenge for 2023 and 2024 years. After two years in recession due to circumstances beyond both Peterborough and Streaky Bay’s control, we need to ensure the continuation of this amazing annual event which started in 1996. We now have a very active Executive Committee who are keen to mentor and provide continual support to any persons who are willing to put their hand put for the next few years. Check out the executive committee on our web site I’m certain they would love to have a chat to you.

If interested you can contact me by either our email hosting@saruralwomensgathering.org.au or phone 0438 112 570.

I look forward seeing many of you at Streaky Bay and hopefully hear from some interested in being a Host Town for 2023 or 2024.

Yours Sincerely,
Margaret Howie

Dates have changed…

Our gathering will now be  August 19th – 21st, 2022

Hello Ladies

Rural Women’s Gathering Streaky Bay Take Two!

Due to Covid-19 restrictions putting an end to our 2021 event we are back for 2022 with an aim to make this event bigger and better.

We in Streaky Bay (located in the Far West Cost of SA) are so excited to have been given the opportunity to host the 2022 SA Rural Women’s Gathering. The dates are set – 19-21 August 2022 in the naturally beautiful township of Streaky Bay. 

You may note the change of date, unfortunately due to a clash with local football and netball finals we were unable to proceed with the original date due to volunteer and small business workshop providers availability. We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.


Streaky Bay – Naturally Beautiful – the perfect opportunity to come visit Streaky Bay!

Whilst it will be out of peak season, it is an opportunity to come and explore our rugged coastlines, beaches, and hidden gems, grabbing a coffee and meal in one of our funky café’s, grab a quite wine on the deck of the perfectly located Streaky Bay Hotel, and take a wander up the Jetty!

We have some great little shops to buy a gift, check out the Great White Shark in the Shell Roadhouse or the newly unveiled Kerrin McEvoy Sculpture on the foreshore!
