The Barker Hotel


The Barker Hotel has recently been redeveloped and maintains a warm and welcoming environment from the moment you step inside. Located on Mount Barker’s historical Gawler Street in the heart of Mount Barker, The Barker is just a short 15 minutes up the freeway in the Adelaide Hills. Originally named the Scotch Thistle in 1840, this modernized and elegant hotel has retained many of its heritage features including much of the original stonework.

The award-winning Barker Hotel offers dining showcasing locally sourced food & wines, as well as a variety of free and live entertainment every week. Come visit us and experience our warm hospitality and cosy fireplaces.
