Who is Burra Landcare?

The community of Burra lies about 25 Kms south of Queanbeyan. It is a small head catchment of the larger Upper Murrumbidgee Catchment, and Burra Creek, a perennial watercourse, drains the catchment. Above its junction with the Queanbeyan River at Googong Reservoir, Burra Creek rises approximately 16 Kms south, in the Tinderry Nature Reserve.

As a consequence of Burra's proximity to Canberra, land use in the locality has changed dramatically over the last 30 years, and the area of Burra, together with the adjacent Urila valley, is now mainly rural residential. Beyond Urila, to the area of the Queanbeyan River , land use still extends to larger holdings engaged in primary production.

Our Activities

Burra Landcare is a small but active group that meets on the fourth Monday evening of each month at the Burra Hall. Its mission is to:

  • promote awareness in caring for the land in the local area;

  • educate the community in land care values through presentations by experts;

  • develop community based projects and provide community support for their implementation;  and

  • provide an interface to other Landcare groups through the UMLC.

Current Events

Currently, four Envirofund Grant projects are underway in the community with successful applicants working on erosion control, riparian repair and native plant revegetation.
