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.

Project sites

Over the past three years, Council has undertaken master planning and detailed design for each of the project sites. Information including masterplans, timelines and funding is available at Your Say Barossa and from the below links.

Current priorities

We have adopted the next phase of The Big Project priorities at a value of almost $39 million. This is underpinned by almost three years of research, assessment and engagement:
