Why Mount Barker?

Mount Barker is a place where a committed, connected community and a combination of geography, infrastructure and culture create unique conditions for businesses to prosper.

The region’s advantages include a variety of rural, industrial and retail precincts, proximity to interstate road and rail infrastructure, ample reclaimed water supply, world-class broadband and a population expected to swell by more than 20,000 over the next 20 years.

By 2037, Mount Barker will be South Australia’s second largest city, and our strategy is to attract $2.8 billion of new investment into the region in that time, and to boost our exports by $4 billion.

Established, emerging or unheard of: whatever your business looks like, Mount Barker has what you need to flourish – land that gives you room to grow, a transport network that lets you and your goods move, a welcoming business community, a willing workforce, and a council that’s here to help.

Why Mount Barker? When you realise how much we have going for us here, you’ll be asking ‘why not?’
