Barossa Trail extension underway

The western end of the Barossa Trail will be extended to provide riders with a better thoroughfare to and from Gawler.  

The 40km Barossa Rail Trail currently connects the towns of Tanunda, Nuriootpa and Angaston. It offers tourists an exciting day trip through scenic Barossa Valley, and local riders a safe access to goods and services in other townships.

The 1.8 kilometer extension will be built between Kalbeeba and Sunnydale Avenue in east Gawler, the latter of which connects with local off-road paths running into central Gawler. This important extension will allow riders from Adelaide and elsewhere to access the rail trail by taking a train to Gawler.

The work is being undertaken by the Barossa Council and is expected to be completed by mid-2022.
