THE SOUTHERN BAROSSA - WE L0VE THE PLACE WE LIVE!!
Among the Southern Barossa Alliance's many roles is to help facilitate and provide volunteer assistance to community events within the Southern Barossa. See our coverage of our events below!
THE LYNDOCH CHRISTMAS PARTY
No-one knows how to party better than Southern Barossans!
On Friday December 14, Lyndoch hosted its famous Community Christmas Party, moved at the last minute from the Lyndoch Oval to Chateau Barossa due to inclement weather. Thanks Mark and Mandy Creed from Chateau Barossa who came to Lyndoch’s rescue - otherwise the Christmas Party would have been very soggy!
The Lyndoch Community Committee and the Southern Barossa Alliance were amazed at how many turned out for the event, given the weather and the last-minute change of venue....but it worked!
Thanks everyone for coming along and it proves once again - we love the place we live!

Our Budburst in the Barossa event on the Lyndoch Green proved an outstanding success, drawing hundreds of people who celebrated 'budburst' on a balmy Spring evening on Friday October 12, 2018.
Southern Barossa Alliance's Deputy Chair Steve Balch said the event - and crowd numbers - proved that Southern Barossans respond positively to events like Budburst, which provide them with a family-friendly way of getting together with neighbors.
"We were extremely lucky with the weather, given the days leading up and immediately after Budburst saw a return to winter-like conditions.
"A number of food stalls kept the hungry well satisfied with the Lyndoch Tennis Club, the Barossa Rams Rugby Club, the Pasta Guy, a quality coffee van, a potato spiral stall and Asian and 'game' foods well patronised - and the fun was added to by our own ‘sprouts’ - young entertainers from a number of high schools and colleges around the region who performed during the evening," Steve said.
For the more mature ‘old viners’, the Barossa Rams Rugby Club did beer - and 1847 Wines and Gomersal Wines were there with fine bottles of the fruits of budbursts past.

The SBA, in association with the Barossa District Council, has helped provide support facilities and encouraged community involvement in the famous Santos Tour Down Under which, during January 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 saw the TDU loop through Williamstown, Lyndoch, Sandy Creek and Cockatoo Valley a number of times. The SBA also supports the Womens' Race which continues to grow in strength and popularity.
In each of these years, the SBA has provided increasingly complex support and has hosted the Wheels on the Green community event within the township of Lyndoch, while also providing complementary activities in Williamstown.
Below see some of the promotional collateral distributed throughout the Southern Barossa for the evens, which attracted hundreds and hundreds of fans to both the Men's and Women's Races - not to mention the Wheels on the Green party the Southern Barossa Alliance hosted to celebrate the Santos Tour Down Under!
