Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The township of Burra is an amalgamation of several smaller settlements clustered around the copper mines of the district. All denominations were represented, reflecting the background of the miners and settlers alike. The first Church of England was opened for Divine Worship in 1848. The current building dates from 1879. The organ came in 1905.

The original church of St Mary’s was located at the junction of Ware and Church Streets in 1849. The South Australian Mining Company donated the current church site. The present St Mary’s Anglican Church was completed in 1879 (two years after the mine’s closure) at a cost of £4,000. It was built by the local firm of Sara & Dunstan to the design by G.F. McLagan, who came to live in Kooringa from Melbourne. The Gothic-style church now contains many memorials to Burra’s long-established families and stained glass memorial windows, two of which are from the original St Mary’s Church.

I was so surprised to find this church open, and rather delighted as I was able to wander through it and take photos. Because of how it is placed on the side of the hill, there is plenty of carparking available when you drive in... although none of the carparking is formalised, so I imagine it's a bit messy at events.

Well worth stopping to look around if you are in Burra.

We were not able to gain access but the buildings are in good order & well constructed.
Stained glass windows looked interesting.

This is a beautiful little Anglican Church quite close to the centre of the township. The church is open to the public for set times most days. The stained glass windows are particularly colourful and impressive, and the church has a peaceful and worshipful atmosphere. Burra has an interesting mining history, but for me, St Mary's is the best reason for visiting!
