Barossa open space boost with transfer of Angaston Station land
20 October 2015
More than four hectares of former railway land in Angaston will be transferred to The Barossa Council to extend recreational facilities and preserve the historic station.
Transferring the 4.18 hectare Angaston Railway Station Yard will improve community access to the area including the shared use path.
The Angaston Railway Station Yard is situated on a spur line of the Barossa Valley Railway between Nuriootpa and Angaston which has not seen regular use for more than a decade.
The land transfer will provide for the long-term future of the historic station building in one of Australia’s renowned tourist destinations, the Barossa Valley wine region.
The Barossa Council has created a Conservation Management Plan for the railway precinct which could see the building converted into a museum, art gallery or coffee shop.
Barossa Mayor Bob Sloane welcomed the news and said the council planned to sell a small portion of the land to help fund improvements to recreational facilities on the site, however this would be subject to consultation and planning requirements.
"Cycling is a popular way for tourists to enjoy the picturesque scenery of the Barossa and the shared use path is also a popular recreational facility for locals," Mr Sloane said.
"The 7-kilometre Barossa bike trail follows the old rail corridor from Angaston to Nuriootpa and connects with the 27-kilometre Jack Bobridge trail which extends from Tanunda to Gawler.
"With the transfer of this land, the council will be able to create better linkages between the bike trail and the town of Angaston.
"This also an opportunity to preserve the historic station building as an icon site for the history of the region."
The council’s Conservation Management Plan also includes provision for conserving the heritage railway infrastructure and interpretive signs for the precinct.
