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,Learn more about Barker

"Alcohol is a leading cause of death and hospitalisation for older Australians, and is one of the most common health problems among older veterans. Every year, hundreds of older people die from alcohol-related causes, and thousands are hospitalised due to alcohol."

At Easter, Christians commemorate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In a broader sense it is also about renewal and rebirth. It's a time for many to take a well earned break with family, friends and loved ones. As we spend time with those closest to us, it is important to reflect on who we are and who we can aim to be, improving ourselves and thus helping us to enrich the lives of those around us.
Happy Easter. ... See MoreSee Less
