Venues, Business, Musical supporters of Club
Since 1993, when the Tonkin family took over, The Gov has established itself as South Australia’s leading live music venue and is highly regarded upon by musicians and music-lovers alike. Between the regular local bands playing in the front bar and the world-class music featured in the venue, The Gov really is Adelaide’s home of live, original music.

Wundenbergs Recording Studio
Wundenberg’s Recording Studios is an award winning (‘Best Studio’ at the 2019, 2021 and 2022 South Australian Music Awards) two-studio recording complex located in Adelaide, South Australia.
Our recording studios are hidden away in the heritage listed Thebarton Incinerator.
This distinctive building was designed by American architect Walter Burley Griffin in the 1930s and has been repurposed to function as a recording facility. Burley Griffin is famous for planning and designing the city of Canberra.
The building’s thick brick walls and high internal ceilings have created ideal recording conditions.
Whilst predominately being a recording facility, we also have 6 rehearsal rooms available.
Wundenberg’s is also conveniently located within a short walk of various bakeries, cafes, pubs, bars and supermarkets.
