Burra

Slidehow of my morning walk in Burra.




We visited Burra on the recommendation of my niece.  It is an old copper mining town with beautifully preserved buildings and is now a well functioning service centre for the surrounding farming communities.  It was a pretty place for an early morning walk and home to the only other Royal hotel I found in South Australia (a royalish one.)

    Those stone buildings have such character.

  4. I want to go to Burra!
    These photos are especially beautiful because of the morning light.
    Love the little terrace houses coming down the hill.

  5. Lovely light captured here, Joan.

    I especially like the shot of the grocer shot and the glorious DoF of the fence closeup.

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
