Copper and diprotodons of Burra

Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd June

Leader: Phil Woodard and Kym Dixon
Contact: kymdixon1@bigpond.com


This is an advanced notice of an excursion to the Mid-north area on Friday 21st to Sunday, 23rd June. We realise some people might be working on the Friday, so there is the option of joining the excursion on the Saturday at Burra.
The plan is to travel to Burra via Pt Wakefield, Balaklava and Clare, looking at areas of geological interest along the way. Saturday will be visiting at locations around the Burra region. Sunday will focus on the mining history of the town.
The 2 nights will be spent at Burra. The accommodation options are:
•    Caravan Park – but there are only van sites here, no cabins.
•    The Burra Motor Inn has motel units with rooms of various bed configurations. Two people may find sharing a room a good option. The motel option would probably suit most of our members.
•    Paxton Cottages which are a bit more upmarket and expensive.
•    Two of the hotels offer accommodation.
As has been the case with recent extended excursions, we are suggesting that people make their own accommodation booking. It is advisable that you do this soon to secure the accommodation of your preference.

Burra has a lot to offer the tourist and some people might like to spend some extra days after the Sunday exploring these locations at their leisure.

If you are interested in attending this excursion, you can sign up by contact myself or, put your name on the sign-up sheet at the next meeting.
