UKARIA Cultural Centre

119 Williams Rd, Mt Barker Summit SA 5251

UKARIA Cultural Centre is perched on the hillside of the Ngeringa property in the picturesque Adelaide Hills just outside Mount Barker. The Centre is located just 40km from the Adelaide CBD and is an easy drive on the South Eastern Freeway, which takes 40 minutes. Getting to UKARIA is now even easier via the new Bald Hills Road exit, which bypasses the township of Mount Barker and takes you straight to UKARIA's tranquil setting, surrounded by rolling hills and vineyards.

UKARIA Cultural Centre is 1km from the junction of Williams Road. Please drive slowly as Williams Road is unsealed.

There is designated parking for artists/bridal parties/conference organisers adjacent to the building on the southern side.
