Five recreation and community masterplans
have been unveiled by The Barossa Council for
Barossa-wide community consultation as part of
the Southern Barossa Hub project.
A year in the making, the masterplans propose
co-located, multi-purpose facilities at Lyndoch
Oval, Queen Victoria Jubilee Park in Williamstown
and Curdnatta Park at Sandy Creek, plus a new
dedicated rugby site adjacent the Rex in Tanunda.
A fifth masterplan shows a purpose built hub
facility at a greenfield site, but no suitable location
for that option is currently available.
The project is a response to growing pressure
on the use and demand for recreation, sporting
and community facilities in the south, as well as
potential for growth in the eco-tourism market.
Key changes being proposed include:
• Relocating Barossa Districts football and
netball clubs to Lyndoch Oval
• Relocating junior football to Curdnatta Park
• Using Williamstown Queen Victoria Jubilee
Park to develop non-traditional sporting, outdoor
adventure and leisure activities
• Relocating Barossa Rams Rugby Club from
Lyndoch to purpose-built grounds at Tanunda to
overcome the challenges of co-locating rugby and
AFL codes at Lyndoch on the same playing surface.
Lyndoch will remain the home of Little Athletics,
cricket, bowls, tennis and the pigeon club and Sandy
Creek will continue to support cricket, the events
pavilion and Scouts.
The masterplans should be viewed alongside the
Southern Barossa Hub Feasibility Study, which
provides the rationale for each option and high
level costings, which are subject to ongoing review
and include contingencies.
“We’re really excited to release these masterplans
for public community consultation,” said Mayor
“They are the result of extensive consultation with
stakeholder groups who have made compromises
and been part of constructive conversations to
ensure everyone benefits from this significant
restructure of sport and recreation facilities within
the constraints of the existing locations available
Mr Sloane acknowledged the difficulties of
achieving the preferred option of a greenfield site
due to lack of appropriate and suitably zoned,
“Although we have released a greenfield
masterplan for community consultation, it’s
important for people to realise no suitable,
available greenfield site has been identified. If that
remains the preferred option of the community
then the project implementation could be delayed
indefinitely,” he said.
“A feasible alternative is redeveloping Lyndoch
into a central, multi-function hub and improving
satellite facilities at Sandy Creek and Tanunda.
“If stakeholders are willing to work towards this
shared solution, we will work to implement it when
funding can be approved and agree on timeframes.”
Council is seeking community feedback on the
draft masterplans from January 27 to March 3
