The Burra Heritage passport is something we have wanted to do for a very long time and it did not disappoint at all. It feels special to be able to unlock doors and gates, not knowing what you are going to see and experience. All...More

We weren't expecting too much, but what a surprise we got. Everything has been lovingly restored and so much information to see and even in a day we couldn't see it all. Such an interesting place. We will be back!

Rest Rooms were very good. The Trail was worth travelling around especially Hampton Village. The gaol was interesting also. Great that you can get the key and see sights at your own leisure.

A most informative history tour of the town & its workings. Wonderful building skills on show. Living conditions for many in dugouts in the creek an eye opener. The whole tour most informative & worth the price of entry
