The community spirit is very strong in Burra and there are numerous examples of people helping out when trouble arises - whether it be bush fires, house fires, medical emergencies or locating missing persons.  Apart from emergencies, people in the area volunteer for all of the regular tasks that arise in a community.  Some idea of the range of volunteer responsibilities can be gleaned from the community activities highlighted on this page.

There are a number of different community groups, which have formed over the years.  As with any organisation of this nature, each is dependent on volunteers to run them, organise people or children and coordinate their special activities.  You can find a list of Burra clubs and organisations on our community groups page.
