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.
Our 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 our Long Term Financial Plan and is premised on attracting third-party funds to deliver infrastructure upgrades.
