  • MOUNT BARKER - Hahndorf
 

Mt. Barker is about 35ksm from Adelaide, reached by taking the South Eastern Freeway. If you go to Hahndorf 1st, then Mt. Barker is about 12ks further on. You will pass an old Windmill, built in 1842 on Windmill Hill, this is about halfway.
Mt. Barker, the town is named after the Mountain which it is situated by. From the summit, about 2kms east of the town, you get far views of the rolling hills and Mt. Lofty, and then the plains in the other direction.

A good lookout.

To reach the summit, you follow Springs road from the centre of town, or the Mt. Barker summit road from nearby Nairne.
