Mount Barker, the mountain, was first sighted by Captain Charles Sturt in 1830 and the settlement was township was surveyed in 1839. It was hoped the area could be used for wheat and grain farming although farmers didn't settle until 1844, when John Dunn built the first steam flour mill outside of Adelaide. The flour mill ran for 50 years and is now a tourist attraction.

Mount Barker has since developed into a large urban centre and is an expanding city only 33km east of the Adelaide CBD. It is the largest town in the Adelaide Hills, with more than 10,000 people.
