Touring … Mount Barker WA

 

Mount Barker is a small country town and the administrative centre of the Shire of Plantagenet. It services an expansive agricultural area, where there has been successful diversification into viticulture and the cultivation of wildflowers.

 

Settled very early in Western Australia’s European history, Mount Barker boasts a number of lovingly preserved and unique buildings, including St Werburgh’s Chapel and the convict-built Old Police Station.

 

Whilst cherishing its history, Mount Barker has responded to its growing popularity as a touring centre with the development of new visitor facilities to suit every taste.

 

Enjoy a leisurely 45 minute scenic drive through farmland and forest, via Denbarker Road and Muirs Highway, to neighbouring Mt Barker, for a day of sightseeing .

Visit St Werburgh’s Chapel on the way.
