Would you like to join our team at Mt Barker Medical Clinic? We'd love to chat!

Mt Barker Medical Clinic is an AGPAL accredited practice and is the oldest family practice in Mount Barker, having looked after the health of the local community since the 1800s.

In 2018, the clinic relocated from its original location in Gawler Street to Victoria Crescent, expanding from six to 12 consulting rooms, increased parking facilities (including underground parking for doctors), a large and fully equipped treatment room, and blood collection amenities on-site.

The clinic’s consulting rooms are spacious and filled with natural light. Many also have picturesque views of the creek and walking paths winding along the natural bushlands directly behind the clinic.

The town of Mount Barker is located an easy 30-minute drive from Adelaide’s CBD via the South Eastern Freeway and is home to 36,477 people. It is the largest town in the Adelaide Hills, and one of the fastest-growing areas in South Australia, with the population forecast to grow to 56,710 by 2036.

Opportunities for Nurses, Allied Health & Admin
