This project aims to bring to light the history of the Mount Barker area via QR Codes positioned in the landscape and townscape, where they are easily accessible to pedestrians. The project is being sponsored by the Mount Barker District Council and Business Mount Barker.
We plan to give access to historical information in four loosely-linked precincts: the historical section of Mount Barker General Cemetery in Springs Road, the commercial district along Gawler Street, a section of Mount Barker’s Linear Trail between Auchendarroch and Bollen Road, and along Bollen Road itself.
During the past year our focus has been on the historical Cemetery, which was first in use in 1856. Visitors are now able to read the stories of people behind the graves, via twenty QR-Coded History Posts that have been positioned amongst the plots.
