Peacock's Chimney

Peacock's Chimney was built in 1857 on a site within the present open cut mine. The chimney channeled smoke from the boilers of Morphett's Enginehouse, but was dismantled stone-by-stone and rebuilt on this site in 1971 when mining recommenced in the Monster mine.

On top of the chimney is Johnny Green, he was the Burra miners mascot.
