A Great Place to Live

Imagine your lifestyle... a place where you can do as little or as much as you wish. A place where you can be certain to have excellent public transport, recreational, social, shopping, education and health facilities close at hand and a place where you and your family can feel safe.

The District of Mount Barker has all this and more. It’s a great place to live, a great place to work, a great place to retire and a great place to visit.

A move to the District has been noted as a 'tree change' – surrounded by rolling hills, fresh air, open spaces, quaint country towns and villages along with wildlife and natural beauty.

At any given time you are merely a five-minute drive away from the sense of freedom and tranquillity.
