Germans in the Barossa Valley - Dotted among the vineyards of the Barossa Valley in South Australia are more than sixty churches to serve the religious needs of 10000 people. Many of the churches, crammed into an area with a radius of 12 miles, have been standing for over 100 years - a lengthy time in a State which had it's beginnings in the early nineteenth century. Pastor Augustus Kavel, founder of the United Evangelical Church in Australia, played a big part in the establishment of churches in the valley. He founded a church in the village of light pass in 1846 and died in 1860. This is the inscription on his tomb in the Langmeil cemetery at Tanunda
