I've only heard it as a tourist marketing term. Referring to everything touristy along the coast from Selleck's Hill to Deep Creek.
Which would preclude it from the "contiguous urban area" qualification
It's only the 3 small urban areas of Normanville, Yankallila and Carrickalinga.

Gawler and immediate surrounds comes under Adelaide's greater metropolitan area, as does the others mention above, Mount Barker, Aldinga, Sellicks, etc.

I drive to Murray Bridge every month and I can assure you it does not fit the description of being an outer suburb of Adelaide and is not captured by the Greater Adelaide population.

Same.

Btw I didn't realise Murray Bridge was that big now. Despite both being outer suburbs of Adelaide now, it would be interesting to see where Gawler and Mt Barker would fit in that list.
Town of Gawler, which includes
Bibaringa (5118)
Evanston (5116)
Evanston Gardens (5116)
Evanston Park (5116)
Evanston South (5116)
Gawler (5118)
Gawler East (5118)
Gawler South (5118)
Gawler West (5118)
Hillier (5116)
Kudla (5115) and
Willaston (5118)


Is around 23,000
You might be able to argue that Gawler is realy just a suburb of Adelaide (especially if you were making that argument for Millicent or Penola as suburbs of Mt Gambier).

Alternatively there are a few more places that are part of urban Gawler but not the Town of Gawler. I'd say it should include include Reid, Buchfeld and Hillier on the west, Hewett and Gawler Belt to the north. Probably also Kalbeeba and Concordia on the east.
Here's the map used for GREATER ADELAIDE by the ABS. All of the above are part of GREATER ADELAIDE when it comes to head counting!
