Overview

The Mount Barker Visitor Centre is the "shop front" of the Mount Barker Tourist Bureau (Inc), a fully accredited tourism business. Both the Mount Barker Tourist Bureau and our Visitor Centre are autonomous and self funded. We rely on the essential financial support from annual fees paid by our very much appreciated financial members, the sale of merchandise and fund raising activities. Our Board and Visitor Centre literally and collectively put in thousands of unpaid hours, simply because we believe in what Mount Barker and the surrounding region has to offer: Real, unspoiled, natural and unique - exactly what a country tourism experience should be. Mount Barker - "Gateway to the Amazing South Coast - Worth Every Moment"

Very good information center with friendly staff. The ladies at the center were very friendly and provided lots of advise and information. There were some nice souvenirs and books and brochures about the area. A good place to stop and get information about the area.
