The Jinker



The Jinker is a truly unique relic of colonial transportation. It was specially made to transport Morphetts huge steam house boiler and engine to the Burra Mine, requiring 72 bullocks to pull it.

Listen to Johnny Green as he describes the team that drove the passage of the Jinker from Port Adelaide to Burra.
Keep your ears open, and Johnny will reveal an answer to one of our Scavenger hunt questions as he speaks.

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