TEAMS for the Santos Women's Tour

on the region to compete in the interna-
Last week, Cycling Australia declared
the Uni SA Australian national women's
team will compete for the first time in the
TDU, last Thursday, ahead of the four stage
event, which will commence on Wednes-
day, January 11 in Gumeracha.
The team includes Katrin Garfoot, Shara
Gillow, Rachel Neylan, Tiffany Cromwell
and Lauren Kitchen, with the sixth rider set
to be announced after the Australian Open
Road Championships, held this Sunday.
"Not only does the inclusion of this team
in our peloton give the riders the opportuni-
ty to compete in their home country, but the
opportunity to compete at an international
race in their own backyard, at the start of
the season," Santos Women's Tour Down
Under race director Kimberley Conte said.
Riders will compete locally on Friday,
January 12, starting in Lyndoch and finish-
ing on Mengler Hill.

Tanunda hotel land swap divides locals
CHATEAU Tanunda's proposed five-star
hotel is nearing a reality, despite a mixed
response from locals about the develop-
The well-known winery is set to undergo
a $30 million redevelopment, including the
build of a new 100-120 room hotel and a
statewide culinary institute for education and
cultural and culinary tourism.
Both of these would be located adjacent to
the chateau on two allotments, which are cur-
rently owned by Barossa Council and zoned
for 'community use'.
At council's December meeting, elected
members supported removing the commu-
nity use classifications, and asked Planning
Minister John Rau for his final approval.
If given the green light, Chateau Tanunda
is intended to become the owner of the al-
lotments, in exchange for council receiving a
parcel of the business' land, which would be
re-dedicated for community use.
Council's approval followed a mixed re-
sponse from locals during community con-
sultation on the proposal, which attracted
around 20 submissions.
Amongst those critical of the move were
local resident Emily Faulkner, who wrote the
land being offered in return was lesser qual-
ity and would "actually be less useful to our
"My family and I regularly access the cur-
rent council land and were not happy to hear
it could be swapped for development by the
chateau," Ms Faulkner wrote.
"It is a lovely piece of land with big gum
trees and a great open space.
"It would be a shame for it to be lost
to the community, we have always felt
so lucky to be able to access such a space
so close to our home."
Some locals, however, were supportive
of the land exchange, saying the end result
would be "a very big positive" for the Baros-
"If this does not go through we are not se-
rious about promoting the Barossa as in our
slogan," local resident Ron Bailey stated.
"This is a no-brainer in my opinion.
"The land in question at this point in time
"It would make a lot more sense having the
land close and more accessible to the com-
munity being on the town side of the railway
line, as well as being easier to access and

Barossa helps set tourism record for SA
TWELVE thousand international travel-
lers visited the Barossa and stayed almost
180,000 nights in the region, over the 12
months up to last September.
These figures, revealed last month in the
Federal Government's International Visitor
Survey, contributed significantly to the state
breaking its record for the most international
More than 44,000 overseas travellers land-
ed in South Australia between September
2016 to September 2017, spending $1.1 bil-
lion, overall, in the state.
Tourism Minister Leon Bignell applauded
the figures, saying it was a testament to the
State Government's investment in the Baros-
sa and the tourism industry statewide.
"Just an arm's length away from Adelaide,
the picturesque Barossa region is famous for
its food and wine, and home to some of the
oldest vines in the world," he said.
"The whole region is a foodie's delight and
it's fantastic to see thousands of internation-
al visitors adding it to their South Australian
"Not only have we increased our marketing
spend to promote South Australia, we have
also committed $1.8 million per year to the
South Australian wine sector, including fund-
ing for 37 wineries in the Barossa to update
and improve their cellar doors.
"A further $525,000 was provided to the
Barossa Grape and Wine Industry Associ-
ation to develop a bike/walking track along
Seppeltsfield road, create a 'Barossa Cellar'
events facility and undertake branding and
international marketing activities."
