Loop de Loop in the Barossa

Celebrate ‘Barossa Loop de Loop’ when the Santos Tour Down Under men’s race returns to the region for Ziptrak Stage 1 on Wednesday, January 18, 2023.

Barossa Loop de Loop will be a celebration of everything that makes the Barossa unique!

Enjoy a vibrant street party atmosphere at two main street locations, featuring roving entertainment at the Tanunda Rotunda and family-friendly activations at Tanunda Town Square.

Live music, street performers, children’s activities and community-led performances will create a carnival atmosphere, set against the backdrop of exhilarating cycling action including five loops of Tanunda’s main street and a stage start and finish.

Great new spaces to play

The smiles on the faces of Eli, Eleanor and Esther Falkous say it all!

They were among the first to try out the new play equipment at Queen Victoria Jubilee Park, Williamstown, including rope climbing, swings, bouldering and natural landscape elements. 

Existing mature trees and lawn provide natural cooling, and we have also improved access between the barbecue and playground. 

With over $120,000 in upgrades to local playgrounds in the past financial year, we’re committed to creating more opportunities for children to engage in safe, physical activity.

New app increases accessibility

Do you have a venue that celebrates inclusion? One that makes those living with disabilities comfortable and confident to be in your space? 

Then download the Pavely app and register your service business in a state-wide initiative that is enhancing lives.

Created by the community for the community, the app makes it quick and easy for people with accessibility needs – and those close to them – to find places to go or things to see and do.

Penny and Mark Pfitzner, from the Barossa’s Disability and Access Inclusion Group, encourage businesses to get onboard. 

“Visitors especially will appreciate the app because they will be able to look up the features of different businesses and know exactly what they are going to expect when they get there,” Penny says. 

“Another feature of the app is when people have visited these places, they can put a comment in and I think that is going to be valuable information for people as well,” adds Mark.

The Pavely app is available to download now from the App Store and Google Play.
