This outstanding freehold package includes 420m2 of land and the property is an historic shop (c1848), located on a prominent corner in the main street.

With a guest book listing visitors from 52 countries, the business is currently run solely by the 2 owners. Employing staff would enable the business to expand and grow.

The Cafe/Restaurant opens for breakfast and lunch, Tues-Sun, and dinner from 6pm Thurs-Sat. Again, there is huge potential to grow the business by extending opening hours.

With a home included there is no landlord or rent to worry about and living on site involves no travel and flexible hours.

Over 15 years, the current owners have created a lovely niche with lots of faithful regulars and returnees from Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth. However, there is a definite need to extend the hours and open Sunday nights.

Huge new wind farm and solar farm developments will see many new workers in town. The business has also had requests for off-site catering eg local council (shire) meetings.

Burra has several events during the year which sees the B&Bs, caravan park and other accommodation filled to capacity.
