You are in a wheat/sheep farming area with merino sheep grazing up the hill and wheat fields in front of the cottage. You have a view across the heritage town that takes in all three of the mining chimneys plus the large stone pumphouse. You will often see kangaroos in the adjoining paddocks.
Just 3 kilometers from the center of town you will find plenty to do. Follow the heritage trail with your `key to the town', wander through the antique shops, stroll through the galleries and museums or feed the friendly ducks on the creek. If you are looking to dine at La Pecora Nera (The Black Sheep) Restaurant in Burra you should make a prior booking.
