Hammer & Gad Eating House

Hammer and Gad Eating House - Peake ruins

The Hammer and Gad Eating House at the Peake historic site is one of the more mysterious ruins along the Oodnadatta Track. No one really knows when it was constructed or what its original purpose was.

An 1886 application for a hotel at the Peake ruins was rejected by Government and it is likely that the building existed then. As the Bullocky Road (ref.) passed directly by the front door of the Hammer and Gad it is likely that it functioned as a wayside inn from around 1872 until about 1891 when the old road was displaced by the Ghan Railway.
