Standing the tests of time - historic Burnima Homestead opens its doors once again

Bombala's Burnima Historic Homestead was built in 1896 and since then it has stood the tests of time.

It has survived WW1, WW2, the Great Depression, drought, floods, fires and now the COVID-19 pandemic.

Proprietor and host of the Victorian homestead, Steve Rickett said, "Burnima's walls and her surrounding 130-year-old parklands have an interesting story to tell of her past occupants and the illustrious Victorian period in rural Australia."

"I am excited to once again open Burnima's doors to lovers of Victorian period architecture and beautiful parklands.

"People are invited to visit and be transported back to a period where Australia was experiencing prosperity, wealth and confidence," he said.

Burnima Homestead re-opens to guided tours on Saturday, July 4 from 10am to 12noon at a cost of $10 per person.

"So after you have performed your duty to help decide this regions prosperity by voting on Saturday, treat yourself to a guided tour and engross yourself in a past world leaving the vexations of 2020 at the gate," Mr Rickett said.

"We are asking groups to please book so that we can ensure social distancing can take place."
