Greatly overpriced for what is on offer.(50 dollars two seniors) some interesting sites but you would be better off using a visitors guide and arranging your own tour.

So much more to see in Burra than expected. You could really spend a full day or two exploring the historical sites. The passport is a fab and unique way to explore the area.

If in the area, this is worth taking in. For a small town it’s quite interesting to see how things once were plus the old prison which was part of the movie Breaker Morant and another site (old brewery) which had a part in Wolf...More

Worth doing (once). Some interesting places, especially the gaol and brewery. Would have been better if it included entry to Railway and Morphetts Engine House. Not great value for $30 per adult. Bon Accord Mine was disappointing - volunteers were a bit chaotic/flustered. Lights were...More

This is a wonderful idea. Burra has so much history and a lot of it is still standing for us to see. The beautiful historical buildings from the town hall to the underground brewery tunnels are a must see. You can see many of these...More

Picking up the key from the info centre and then at your own pace visiting all the historical sites around the town was brilliant. A must do for all ages. Will highly recommend to others.
