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 Barker Hotel offers dining, beverage and gaming facilities as well as a variety of free and live entertainment every week. Our 8 dynamic spaces feature high ceilings, cosy fireplaces, the Nightlife music system and 13 flat screen TVs fully equipped with Fox Sports. Whether you are looking for your next function space or just a place to catch up with friends, The Barker Hotel is the venue for you. Check out our ‘What’s On’ page to see what we are up to!
