Berri Barmera Council is a local government area in the Riverland region of South Australia.

The towns covered by the council area are Barmera, Berri, Cobdogla, Glossop, Loveday, Monash, Overland Corner and Winkie.

The District Council of Berri was declared in 1922, 11 years after the town was proclaimed. Its first major project was to provide reliable electricity to the entire area. It bought the Berri Electric Supply Company in 1936 to facilitate this, and later sold it to the Electricity Trust of South Australia, a state government agency.

The Cobdogla District Council was gazetted on 17 June 1924, and its name changed to District Council of Barmera in 1937. Barmera had been a soldier settlement community after World War I.

Berri and Barmera District Councils merged in 1996 as part of a rationalisation of local government areas.
