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,

I visited the ac.care site at Riverland Field Days on the weekend to discuss the need for more local foster carers in regional areas. ac.care are doing great work in supporting local foster and kinship carers who play such a vital role in our society to provide children in need with safe and nurturing homes. The people who open their homes and hearts to children in need not only make a huge difference to the lives of these children but it can also be an incredibly rewarding and enriching experience as a carer. ...
