The remains of the Brukunga Mine, (an open face Pyrites mine which stopped operations in the 1970’s), is a visible reminder of the mining days of this historic small township. In Brukunga you will find a hall, playground, toilets and general store, and the township is also home of the Country Fire Service Training Camp.

Council endorsed a Township Plan for Harrogate and Brukunga at its 1 June 2020 meeting (minutes / agenda). The plan was developed in association with the community to provide a long term vision for these towns, and to assist in the recovery from the recent fire event prioritising the delivery of short term actions and create strategies designed to help mitigate the risks of similar events occurring in the future.
