      Twin Peaks, Williams Rd, South Australia 5251

      Twin Peaks is located just 40km from the Adelaide CBD and is the an easy drive on the South Eastern Freeway, which takes approximately 40 minutes. Getting to Twin Peaks is easy via the Bald Hills Road exit, which bypasses the township of Mount Barker and takes you straight to this tranquil setting. 

       “The Twin Peaks property (adjacent to the Mount Barker Summit) has added another dimension to UKARIA. It is a space for residencies, a place for artists to create, to renew themselves and to draw inspiration from nature. It is my commitment to honor the Peramangk heritage of this place, to give nature back to nature and return the land to its original state of vegetation.”
