Mount Barker is not only the home of beautiful historic buildings and luscious trees; it hosts a number of great thrift shops where you can easily spend much time and little money.

Coming from the city through the South Eastern Freeway, exit at Mount Barker and drive through Adelaide Road, turn left onto Gawler street and drive past the creek, turn right at the round about and park at the home maker's centre.

This treasure chest located at the back of Dutton Road is filled with vintage and antique furniture; almost everything is in good condition although some items are in need of a little love and care, so add a personal touch to your home with some old school furniture or a vintage ornament.

You've mapped out a fantastic little tour Eliza. After all that walking I'd definitely need a drink, and maybe even your recommendations on some cheap eats :)
