Lifestyle, Businesses and Employment
Mount Barker is an attractive and rewarding place to live for many reasons. Certainly the pace of life, relaxed lifestyle, spacious wonderful environment, combined with the moderate southern WA climate all play a large part.
Supa IGA, with its large supermarket and hardware store and the Shire of Plantagenet are the main employers. However, a wide diversity of employment and business opportunities exist, limited only by your creativity, drive and imagination.
Retail and Service outlets, Financial and Banking, Heavy Haulage, Wineries, Vineyards, Farming, Automotive and Hospitality are just some of those opportunities.
Mount Barker, as the gateway to the Amazing South Coast is within 45 minutes of breathless marine scenery and environments, Albany, Denmark and everything in between. Making the location a perfect tourist exploration base.
So residents, tourists and visitors can enjoy the best of both worlds. You can, when the need takes you, enjoy the bustle of a large coastal City, knowing that you will be returning to the inland relaxed Range-nestled farming expanse of Mount Barker and the surrounding Shire.
