Barossa Council Update


Barossa Council Update

MARCH, 2023

Recharge and discover your next adventure at the Vintage Festival Hub

Proudly hosted by the Barossa Visitor Centre, the Barossa Vintage Festival Hub on the lawns of Tanunda Town Square will again be open each day to provide the perfect spot to drink and eat with friends, recharge and discover your next adventure following a busy day out and about.

With a glass of wine in hand, maybe you’ll be admiring the bespoke, artisan products and produce you found at the Barossa Made Market with its local makers, artists and producers having shared their unique wares just a few short steps from where you are now, relaxing under the stars as another busy Vintage Festival day draws to a close.

Could you be recalling the exhibition you found, less than a five-minute walk away, at the Barossa Regional Gallery? 

You are probably wondering whether the vote you cast in the People’s Choice award after admiring the 70+ entries in the Barossa Vintage Festival Art Prize, will win its creator a prize?

Or is it April 21 and you’ve just returned from the Historic Pipe Organs and Bells Tour which had you visiting several churches in the region, enjoying short recitals and guided talks at each destination?

Perhaps those insights into the region’s rich music heritage have inspired you to hear more and you’re eagerly anticipating your return to the Barossa Regional Gallery for the 2.30 p.m. start of the Music for Grand Organ on April 23?

Of course, you may have just wandered back from the April 21 book launch of ‘A History of the Barossa Vintage Festival – Past & Present Events’, having listened to our 2021 Barossa Young Ambassador participant, Rebekah Rosenzweig share all she’s learned about the festival which dates back to1947.

Or, you could have discovered the free Barossa Heritage Trail mobile app so you’re planning a self-guided tour to further connect with the Barossa Vintage Festival’s origins. 

You’ll undoubtedly pause at the Nuriootpa Library for a reprisal of the 2021 Photographica event which celebrates the fun and frivolity of past festivals through film and images.

As proud supporters of the biennial Barossa Vintage Festival, remember no matter which corner of our region you’ve been taken to during this 75 year anniversary event, you’re welcome to return to the Barossa Vintage Festival Hub to rewind, relax and imagine your next wonderful experience. We’ll see you there!

A playground for all

It’s a clear thumbs up from Indie Flynn, Isla Glaetzer, Chelsea Flynn and Imogen Glaetzer who were among the first to put the new Tanunda Inclusive Playground to the test.

Located off Bilyara Road at Tanunda Recreation Park, children as well as the young at heart have been whizzing their way through the air on the flying fox, bouncing on trampolines and enjoying every minute of the climbing and elevated play areas, slides and swings, sand and water play spaces.

And you can too! There’s plenty of shade and seating, toilets, barbecues and a water fountain, making it the perfect place to spend the entire day.

The $1.1 million playground has been made possible by State Government grant funding of $330,000 and a Council contribution of $782,000 as part of The Big Project.
