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.

It’s so important to see the conditions that early settlers endured. A visit to the dugouts will make you appreciate what you have. Sadly they seem to require a little attention to ensure they will remain for future visitors.

Interesting history of temporary accommodation near Burra when at its peak. Burra Pass holders can access, not much to see but plenty to soak up and imagine. Worth a visit

When housing was in short supply in Burra in the early 1850s due to the copper mining boom, miners lived in dugouts along the Burra Creek, the 1851 census recorded 1800 of the total 4400 inhabitants in Burra living in dugouts. Living conditions were very poor, subject to flooding and outbreaks of disease were not uncommon. Currently the dugouts are under the care of the National Trust South Australia. The site can be viewed from Blyth Street, but the holder of a Burra Heritage Passport Key has access to go inside a dugout.
