The Barker Electorate

The Division of Barker is an Australian Electoral Division in the south-east of South Australia. The division was established on 2 October 1903, when South Australia’s original single multi-member division was split into seven single-member divisions.

It is named for Collet Barker, an early explorer of the region at the mouth of the Murray River. The 63,886 km² seat currently stretches from Morgan in the north to Port MacDonnell in the south, taking in the Murray Mallee, the Riverland, the Murraylands and most of the Barossa Valley,

This project was jointly funded by Ryder-Cheshire, Rotary Mount Gambier, and the Federal Government investing $530,000 through the Building Better Regions Fund that I announced in July last year. It was great to come back today and see the finished product! ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you for having me Boandik. And thank you for proudly and responsibly flying one of our most important national symbols. 🇦🇺️New Flag at Crouch Street …

There’s a new Australia Flag flying above Boandik Crouch Street, thanks to Tony Pasin MP’s office.

Last week Tony Pasin delivered the new flag to resident Peter Slaven to raise above the home.

We thank you! It looks great.
