Background to The Big Project

The Big Project is the Barossa region’s largest and most ambitious community infrastructure project.

It's about producing a masterplan over the next 12 months that pulls together our current recreation, sports and culture plans; filling in the gaps; and then aiming high to deliver it during the next decade.

The year-long initiative was unveiled in September and focuses on:

  • Recreation and sports                                                
  • Aquatics
  • Arts, culture, tourism and heritage
  • Cycle/leisure tourism
  • Other drivers for investment

The benefits of the project will be tangible, delivering employment, economic benefits, tourism outcomes and health and wellbeing improvements for decades to come.

The roadmap has a 50-year horizon and will become the blueprint for Council’s investment in recreation, culture and social infrastructure for decades to come.

One Big Masterplan

Council currently has multiple existing plans based around township development, sports and recreation and arts and culture. The Big Project will pull these together and identify gaps to develop one big Masterplan on a region-wide basis.

Business As Usual
