Burra Police Lockup and Stables

The Police Lockup and Stables are part of the unique Burra Heritage Trail.

Erected at the rear of the first police station in 1847, the cells were used as a temporary Gaol until Redruth Gaol was built in 1856. Additional cells, stables and the stableyard were added in 1873. The Police Station is now the location for the Burra Burra Branch of National Trust SA archives, and  is not open to the public. The Police Lockup and Stables were dedicated to the National Trust in 1976 .

*Part of the Burra Passport obtained from the Burra Visitor Centre. The Burra Heritage Passport gives access to a number of locations on the Johnny Green’s Trail. The cost of the Burra Heritage Passport for National Trust members is $20.00.
