Bereits nach 45 Km erreichen wir das verschlafene Mt. Barker, inmitten von Farmen und Wald. Nur ein weiteres Zentrum der in dieser Region typischen Landwirtschaftsindustrie. Rund um das kleine Städtchen verteilt liegen Farmen, Weingüter, Farmen, endlose Wälder, Farmen und das obligatorische Buschland. Wir machen kurz Rast und erfahren von dem beeindruckenden Porengorup Nationalpark mit seinen abstrakten Felsformationen etwa 20 Minuten entfernt von Mt. Barker.
