Mount Barker

Mount Barker, just 50 kilometres north of Albany, is located within the Shire of Plantagenet, one of thirteen Local Government municipalities that make up the Great Southern Region.

Framed by the spectacular Stirling (to the north) and Porongurup Ranges (to the south), Mount Barker and the surrounding shire offers a wealth of Tourist opportunities and experiences.

Clean air, large National Parks, fertile farmland, bountiful vineyards, wonderful award-winning wines, captivating cellar doors, eating and tasting experiences for every palate and budget, breathtaking scenery, leisurely "old fashioned" friendly shopping and service and history-steeped heritage attractions.

An abundance of seasonal wildflowers (some of which are found nowhere else in the world) coupled with incredible and diverse accommodation combine uniquely to make Mount Barker a must-see and stay tourist destination!

Throughout the year, Mount Barker plays host to a vast array of spectacular Festivals and Events, including Grapes and Gallops (January), Porongurup Wine Festival and Graze Mount Barker (March), Porongurup Art In The Park (March/April) and the Taste Great Southern Festival (February to April) to name but a few.
