SPLASHES of colour will awash the region, as
local towns don their Sunday best for the upcoming
Santos Tour Down Under.
Hundreds of spray-painted bike frames, colourful
bunting and decorated guernseys will cover Lyndoch
and Williamtown's main streets, as they fight against
40 other towns for the title of 'Best Dressed Town'.
Southern Barossa Alliance chairman Simon Taylor
said Lyndoch was aiming for its second consecutive
win, after taking out the competition last year with its
'Forest to Vines' theme.
"We are hoping to be bigger and better than last
year, but we don't know what the other towns will be
doing," he said.
"There is a bit of competition, but we do try to help
the other local towns.
"We are trying to rejuvenate the country community
spirit, so we are actively trying to promote the
culture of volunteering and encouraging people to be
"It's our way of getting the community involved and
making them aware of the event."
Bike frames atop hay bales will guide visitors into
town, while colourful crochet and knitted 'yarn
bombs' will be scattered across more than 100 trees
and posts throughout town.
Meanwhile, Williamstown Tour Down Under co-
ordinator Robyn Dennard said local volunteers have
begun dressing the town, which won in 2015 and
came runner-up to Lyndoch last year.
"Lyndoch are pretty hard to beat now, we'd like to say
we will come first, but who knows?" she said.
"This year, we are concentrating on where the loops
"Last year we put up pine trees to represent the forest
and the vines, and we will be doing that (again) this
"Hopefully, we'll get the community behind us to
decorate the town."
More than $7000 in cash prizes and the signed framed
jerseys will be up for grabs as part of the competition.
Daily winners will be announced after each stage,
with the overall category winners awarded gold,
silver and bronze at the end of the event on Sunday,
