Themes and Stories in the History of Mount Barker by Yvonne Routledge

An Australia Day parade in Gawler Street, Mount Barker, 1917 (Mount Barker Community Library)

The history of Mount Barker has many fascinating themes and stories. Many centre around the groups of people from different backgrounds who have made Mount Barker their home. From the Peramangk people whose history goes back 40,000 years, to today’s urban dwellers, all have left their mark on the community. Mount Barker has also been impacted by external changes and world events, war, depression, economic booms and busts, urban expansion and social changes, all playing a role in shaping Mount Barker’s history. Perhaps by knowing more about that history we can all help shape its future.
