Community and Wellbeing

The Big Project

The Big Project is the Barossa region’s largest and most ambitious community infrastructure project.

It provides a blueprint for our investment in recreation, culture and social infrastructure over a 35-year horizon.

Council’s vision is to deliver jobs and growth in our community and provide health and wellbeing outcomes that will genuinely transform the Barossa. The Big Project is embedded in Council’s Long Term Financial Plan but requires third-party funds to deliver planned infrastructure upgrades.

Over the past three years, Council has undertaken master planning and detailed design for each of the project sites.
