Friends of Glenburn was formed in 2011 to undertake activities in the Glenburn/Burbong precinct, in particular concerned with the European heritage in the area.

For those people not familiar with the area, it involves very early settlers (1831) in the Queanbeyan area. It still contains relics of European settlement in the area like the pise and slab huts of Glenburn Homestead and a small graveyard that dates to 1837 where 5 members of the first settler family, Luke and Mary Colverwell, are buried. For those interested in more detail, Colin McAlister has done an excellent monograph on 12 historic sites in the Kowen area which is available on the Nation Parks Association of the ACT website at www.npaact.org.au/category.php?id=64.
