Many things have changed in Australia because of the Covid-19 virus pandemic and Burra/Urila is included in the sweeping actions to contain the spread.  All community social events in the valley have been cancelled until further notice and, at the time of writing (early August 2020), this appears to be so for at least the next three months.  Burra Hall is now available for hire on a limited basis, details are published on Page 4 of the August issue of The Intermittent.  Please keep safe.

During the Covid-19 crisis, Burrans can order food to be delivered to Burra.  Details are available on Page 3 of the April edition of The Intermittent.



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).
