Powder Magazine



Explosives used at the mine site were stored in the Powder Magazine. Built in 1847, this is also the oldest surviving mine building in Australia.


Listen to Johnny Green as he talks about using black powder in the mine and the efforts made to ensure safety.


Keep your ears open as Johnny will reveal an answer to one of our Scavenger Hunt questions as the speaks.


If you haven't already picked one up, grab a Burra Heritage Passport Key from the Burra and Goyder Visitor Information Centre at Market Square, and join Johnny Green on a guided tour of our fascinating town.
