Brinkworth, South Australia

Brinkworth Progress Association Inc.

<<<Hot off the press November 5th 2019>>>

Brinkworth Progress Association works with our community to preserve and enhance social, environmental, recreational and economic opportunities in our town.

Any adult resident is welcome to attend our meetings and volunteers are also welcome at working bees.

Our most recent major developments have been an area paved with personalised terracotta bricks, purchased by community members & a colourful children's playground at Stockyard Reserve (left).

We developed and manage the Travellers' Overnight Stay facility at Stockyard Reserve.

We have developed a wheelchair-friendly walking/cycling trail along the route of our disused railway line with railway heritage interpretive signage supplied by Brinkworth History Group.

We facilitate the publication of the Black and White Rag community newsletter.

  • In addition to this we regularly arrange working bees and/or facilitate the following public events:
  • Australia Day Community Breakfast (left)
  • Town Garage Sale Day in Spring
  • Biennial Country Fair in Autumn
  • Town Christmas Party in December
  • Town Birthday Party on November 11, the anniversary of the declaration of the township.

Thank you to


I would like to thank all the people involved with the Brinkworth Country Fair.

  • The Rec Ground and Footy Club for letting Progress use the oval for this event.
  • To John Ramm for having the oval lovely and green on the day; no mean feat with the weather we’ve had.
  • To our Town Crier Graham Bales: you did a mighty job.
  • To SAPOL Dixie Band for donating their time; a most enjoyable performance.
  • All Local stalls and other participating stalls.
  • CFS for their valuable time. They have made it to both our Fairs and we hope they will come again next time.
  • The Ravello’s Circus: very entertaining. Kids and adults loved this fun show.
  • To the PADARC and with a wonderful array of Classic Cars, Utes and Motor Bikes.
  • British Classic Cars.

The Ute muster participation was a pretty good turnout. We have some star young ones getting involved which was good to see.

  • To David Willsher for all your help and being a Judge for the Ute Muster
  • All Sponsors:

Mills Freight Lines, Mid North Motor Co Clare, Repco Pt Pirie, Auto Pro Pt Pirie, Sprint Auto Clare, Clare Valley Toyota, Steinborner Ford Clare, Pink’s Mitre 10 , Brenton & Norma Hardy.

  • Also, to everyone who came to this event.

It was bit of a tough time, but we had already locked in our date before the Laura Fair changed their date. Hopefully next time we’ll be luckier with our dates. But it was still an enjoyable relaxing day.

The aim of this event is to bring people together and have fun and for Locals’ stalls to make a few extra funds.

Kind Regards

Norma Hardy
