“History visited.”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

Any one visiting Burra will have some understanding of the rich history both past and recent relative to its mining history. The town should be proud of the efforts made to preserve the history. All areas are well sign posted, roads are excellent and viewing areas are a credit to this small community. Anyone with an interest in mining history should be encouraged to visit Burra.

A must see but you need help to understand all the original buildings. Use the KEY and take your time. Beware of hot weather.

“This is a must.”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This part if free if you do the tour and is great to see. There is a small fee if you haven't time to do the full tour with the key. The history of the place is astounding.
