Nuriootpa is the last of the trilogy Barossa Towns. Again a nice spot that should be included within the Barossa visit. The name of the town is reputed to be the local Aboriginal word for "meeting place" and is a difficult name to say and spell!!!!

In keeping with the Barossa tradition Nuriootpa is a picturesque town, with grape vines growing on some of the buildings in the main streets, and vineyards surrounding the town. This has led to some contention in recent years as the town is growing, and new housing estates are being built on land formerly occupied by the vineyards which made the town attractive in the first place.

It is also home to some very famous wineries including Penfolds and other famous brands.

Since the 1930s, Nuriootpa has often been cited as a textbook example of inspired community development. The town's community owned and operated hotel has funded many important public facilities, including the Senior Citizens' Club, the swimming pool, and the kindergarten and recreation areas.

Nuriootpa also has a traditional pub.

The Nuriootpa War Memorial is located near the RSL.

The Nuriootpa church denominations are all represented.

Nuriootpa is a very nice spot and a stopover in the region is highly recommended.
