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,

To protect the interests of all communities and stakeholders across the Basin, any motion moved at the Council requires unanimous support. As a critical national asset, state and territory Minsters need to be focused on working together in the interest of all stakeholders and communities.

When recently in my hometown of Mount Gambier I visited with some local businesses who are getting behind the Go Local First campaign, which I am promoting to encourage people to support locals first. During this festive season, I urge you all to support a local business when purchasing gifts and produce. It is so important right now to help stimulate economies in our community.
