The disused Angaston Railway precinct has been turned into a premium destination for a nature play experience with an industrial twist. It honours the role the facility played in the establishment of the region as a horticultural, agricultural, wine making centre requiring regular and reliable transport for product, stock, equipment and passengers to and from the city of Adelaide and the ports.
In July 2020 The Barossa Council officially launched the much anticipated Barossa Adventure Station in Angaston – a $2.5 million dollar project which is part of Council’s The Big Project. The family friendly adventure facility features a one kilometer mountain bike trail, zip-line, accessible trampolines, bespoke tower and slide, skate ramps, bouldering wall, half-court basketball, sensory sound forest poles and serene picnic spaces.
The Barossa Adventure Station incorporates the restoration of the original rail turntable, crane and 1910 station building – an impressive element of the project which saw the building physically jacked up to reconstruct the platform, along with a full roof restoration thanks, in
part, to a $20,000 grant from Heritage SA. It is hoped the beautifully refurbished building, which maintains its original charm and character, will attract a retail or hospitality tenant in the near future, complementing the long term view to further activate the Station space to include community events and markets.
The Angaston Railway Precinct Masterplan recognises the historic value of the site and opportunities to activate this important community space for events, tourism and recreation.
In February 2017 Council undertook extensive community consultation. In addition to community and stakeholder engagement, Council hosted pop-ups at the Angaston Town Hall and Angaston Show.
The consultation attracted 22 formal submissions and 31 informal submissions. Council adopted the masterplan, taking into account traffic and land development matters.
