Suburb Overview

Mount Barker is a town on the Albany Highway and is the administrative centre of the Shire of Plantagenet in the Great Southern region of Western Australia. At the 2006 census, Mount Barker had a population of 1,761.

The town was named after the nearby hill, which it is believed was named by Dr T B Wilson RN, in honour of Captain Collet Barker.

Mount Barker is situated on Albany Highway 350 kilometres south of Perth and 50 kilometres north of the city of Albany. The coastal town of Denmark is around 55 kilometres by road to the south-west via the Denmark Mount Barker Road. The timber town of Manjimup is 160 kilometres west of Mount Barker, via Muir Highway. The Hay River, which flows into Wilson Inlet at Denmark, begins its journey just west of Mount Barker.

Prior to European settlement, small groups of Aboriginal people, called the Bibbulmun People, inhabited the area. These were a nomadic people who followed seasonal food supplies. The Aboriginal name for Mount Barker Hill is 'Pwakkenbak'. Dr Wilson was assisted by Aboriginal guide, Mokare, a Minang man from Albany, who expressed some discomfort at the proximity of the site to the hostile Wilmen of the interior, in his exploration of the region in 1829. European settlement of the Hay River area commenced around the 1830s and the opening of the Perth/Albany Railway in 1889 helped ensure the town's future with the first store opening in 1890. Population growth continued through the 1890s and the first school and the town hall were opened in 1893. The population of the town was 326 in 1898.

Apple orchards were once one of the major industries in the region and thrived until the mid 1960s. Today, viticulture, wheat, canola, plantation timber, sheep and cattle are some of the main agricultural activities still carried out around Mount Barker.

The Plantagenet Shire owns and operates the Great Southern Regional Cattle Saleyards that provides services to cattle producers from within and outside the shire.
