So far I know not directly an octave package for conservation laws.
If you are interested in introductory code (as I understand your question),
to start your own octave coding for the equations you mentioned have a look
at

http://www.math.toronto.edu/mpugh/Teaching/Mat1062/mat1062.html

especially

http://www.math.toronto.edu/mpugh/Teaching/Mat1062/conservation_laws.html

(There are some simple .m files which should directly work with octave).

There exists also some code for matlab to solve burger's equation at

http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/11101

but this one needs some rework for octave since it uses ode15s (which is not
in octave).
