GEHA was established in 1980, initially with a focus on heritage and protection of buildings under demolition threat. Since the mid 1990s GEHA has expanded to focus principally on protection of the natural environment as well as ecologically sustainable development and Aboriginal and European heritage.
GEHA is incorporated under the Associations Incorporation Act and has a Constitution establishing a Committee and officers. Members are bound by Association rules.
GEHA has established a Public Fund called the Gawler Environment Fund. Donations to this fund are tax deductible. The purpose of the Fund is limited to activities covered by the Principal Objective:
