Masterplan for the Angaston Railway Precinct
As part of The Big Project the Barossa Council, Angaston Community and Business Alliance & Regional Development Australia - Barossa, are working together to create inspiring places for our community at the Angaston Railway Precinct.
The Masterplan for the Angaston Railway Precinct identifies uses for the station precinct including restoration of the station building, a display shed for the Barossa Valley Machinery Preservation Society historic engines, improving access to the area from South Terrace & Washington Street, community spaces, landscaping, adventure play area and use of railway carriages as creative community spaces. There is room for many uses that celebrate our heritage and everyday activities, with spaces for children & families, food & wine, Peramangk heritage, local plantings, relaxation, active zones, entertainment and creative spaces.
