About Henry John Bunt, 2nd

Henry Bunt was born in 1865 in Burrawang, NSW, (a private village) the same year it was established. The first community buildings were in Church Street, near Dale street (where the first local agricultural shows were also staged.)

The surrounding land was originally covered with dense scrub and forest which, when cleared, provided rich pasture and horticultural land. By the 1870s there were hundreds of new landholders, and the town grew rapidly to provide for them.

There were several Inns (one, now a private house, can be seen on the corner of Hoddle and Church Streets); a general store (still existing 2005); bank (today in bad repair, a house); schoolhouse (now restored); and several churches.

Although Burrawang was very isolated, the early townspeople seem to have made an extra effort to be sociable and community minded.

The first agricultural "shows" were held in Burrawang, as were horse races, cricket matches, and a well-supported 'School of Arts'. They were also industrious, with sawmills, a butter factory, flour mill, bacon curing, and the first printing works in the Highlands.

At the end of the nineteenth century, Burrawang had a reputation as a vibrant and progressive community.
