Mount Barker, located 50 kilometres northwest of Albany in the Great Southern region offers an excellent 'tree change' opportunity.
As the administrative centre for the Shire of Plantagenet, Mount Barker comes into its own during wildflower season with many cafes, shops and historic buildings proving to be popular tourist attractions.
The locale, once famed for its apple orchards now supports hobby farms and a thriving local art and craft cottage industry. Viticulture, wheat and sheep farming as well as plantation timber continue as the backbone of industry in the area.
To continue the development of a vibrant regional community, purchasers are required to build their home within 36 months from settlement.
