Burrawang General Store

DT@Burrawang General Store

In small villages, the general store is often the central hub for locals and visitors alike, and Burrawang General Store is no different. Tucked away from mainstream Southern Highlands, Burrawang is a cute mellow settlement just a short diversion off the Moss Vale/Robertson road. The 1867 built and rather overly spacious (think cavernous interior) general store feels more stark than cosy. There are some bits ‘n’ pieces to interest visitors, including some local products, and although restored, you get a good feel of the stores’ earlier years. I love the deck out the front, as it is a wonderful place to chill and suck up the Burrawang charm. We are the last patrons of the day and the scones are still hanging in there. Although not as fresh as we had hoped, they still retain a quality that’s well deserving of the accompanying jam and cream. The homestyle strawberry jam is tart rather than sweet, and is matched perfectly with the double thick cream. As always, the tea cosy covered teapot is a kitschy hit!
