August 2013 saw the signing of a historic agreement between the South Australian and Australian Governments allocating $265 million for the South Australian River Murray Sustainability Program (SARMS), with $6.5 million of these funds for the Loxton Research Centre infrastructure redevelopment and innovation project.
The South Australian Government is determined to reignite the vision of the SA Murray-Darling Basin as a premium food and wine production region.
The Loxton Research Centre provides opportunities for strategic co-location of key industry, research, education, business and support entities with the capacity to maximise the benefits to the sector delivered by the SARMS programs.
This project involved:
A new state-of-the-art centre for innovation including research and conferencing;
