A most interesting insight into the past. Wonderful workmanship in the buildings. Excellent views of town & distract from several locations. Part of the Passport tour which was enlightening. The whole passport tour takes at least 3 -4 hours.

Just loved all the preserved Heritage Buildings around the Township of Burra and the stories of Burra's History.

A glimpse into the past with a grand stand view of the old Burra Copper Mine closed in 1970. Easily accessed and good viewing point slightly off the highway.

Recommend visitors pick up the Burra Passport before venturing out. We were restricted by time, but would indeed go back and spend more time exploring this incredibly preserved site. Lots of incredible photos taken from the public viewing areas.

I don't think you can unless there is an interstate bus service going through the town.
