Barossa – the name says it all – Australia’s most famous wine producing region. The Barossa Tourist Park is centrally located in Nuriootpa (the meeting place) and like the wine industry has a proud history. The original land was gifted to the Nuriootpa community by the late William Coulthard to be the new home for football, tennis and cricket. Built and developed by the passionate community, it was officially opened in November 1936 to celebrate the Centenary year.
Nuriootpa- The Meeting Place
Today 81 years later and still run by a volunteer board this picturesque Tourist Park has grown beyond sport and is now a popular sporting/recreation and caravan park facility with 45 cabins and over 150 powered sites. It is within walking distance of the main street of Nuriootpa and close to the many wineries that made the Barossa famous. The Aboriginal word ‘the meeting place’ fits the Tourist Park as here you can meet and make new friends and taste all the Barossa has to offer with its many butchers, bakers and restaurants. If you haven’t stayed at our Park put it on your ‘bucket list’ come and enjoy all the Barossa has to offer – you will not be disappointed.
