Public Health Rules and Covid-19

Recent changes to the Public Health rules to cope with the Covid-19 pandemic have forced the Burra Community Association to postpone the Annual General Meeting.  The AGM was to have been held on Sunday 22nd August, in conjunction with a Free Sausage Sizzle, but both of those events will now be held on Sunday 19th September.  Everyody is welcome, the weather will be warmer and we may be able to hold the meeting outdoors with fewer restrictions.  This date may change yet again if the Publuc Health rules force us to postpone.  Apologies to all, but it is beyond our control.



The Burra valley is approximately 25 km south of Queanbeyan, in the Queanbyan Palerang Regional Council area of NSW. It lies between the Monaro Highway and Captains Flat, 20kms north of Michelago and covers approximately 150 square kilometres. Urila and Tinderry are to the east of Burra.

The valley has been described as: “God’s little acres” (Tom Moore, 2000); “Fine forest country intersected by stony ranges” (Currie 1825); “The most scenic hobby farm area around Canberra” (Nathan Carroll, 2000); “Spectacular views, tranquil” (anon); “Serenity, a little piece of heaven” (Lajla Sidhu, 2000).
