Head north out of Adelaide it doesn’t take long for you to hit Two Wells. It’s a small town, with all the little things a small town should have: bakery, butcher, pharmacy, IGA and football field. It has the pleasant vibes of a small Australian town, where everyone knows their neighbour. It feels rural but is within an hours drive from Adelaide’s city centre.
The first time we drove into Two Wells there was no one around, it was almost like a ghost town. As we drove down the main street it was hard not to miss the bakery, it was the only place with people to be seen. Despite the emptiness of the town the bakery had 12 people queued or waiting outside for their baked goods, with more arriving every minute.
Unsurprisingly, with such a crowd, there were no donuts remaining. So, onwards we drove.
A few months later we found ourselves heading north on a camping trip, and so passing Two Wells we tried again. It was a busy Saturday with a football game in full swing in the adjoining field. I’d never seen so many Utes in one place and I’m pretty certain the whole town was in attendance. I loved the atmosphere, the entire town was thriving with a sense of community. Luckily we hit the bakery before half time, and even then only a single donut remained.
The donut was not only delicious but also reasonably priced. What a lucky treat in this small town and worth the second visit.
