Regional Heritage Network
The Barossa, Light and Gawler Regional Heritage Network represents more than 20 heritage groups across the region.
The Network was established to increase collaboration between heritage groups, develop wider engagement in cultural heritage and identify cultural tourism opportunities.
Projects already underway are developing the Regional Heritage Strategy 2014 - 2020, a heritage touring map and app for the region to be launched later this year.
If you are interested in supporting community heritage or representing your group please come along to our regular meetings.

Regional Heritage Strategy 2014-2020
The Network has brought together their ideas in the Regional Heritage Strategy 2014-2020.
The aims of the strategy are:
- To maintain a strong, knowledgeable and collaborative community heritage sector for the region.
- To establish a strong presence in the cultural tourism sector and establish heritage experiences which contribute to the social, environmental and economic status of the community.
- To establish productive relationships with government, statutory bodies and private interests to ensure decisions relating to or affecting heritage assets are made from an informed viewpoint that incorporates community sentiment.
- To ensure the community are informed about issues and concerns related to the community heritage sector and they have access to opportunities where they can engage with heritage experiences, organisations and issues.
The strategy and annual plan is available from the links below:
