About Burnie

General Information about Burnie

Burnie is a port city on the north-west coast of Tasmania. Burnie overlooks Emu Bay on the north-west coast and the industrial city is Australia's fifth largest container port. Burnie is a vibrant place to visit with plenty of summer activity at the waterfront. Enjoy fresh fish and chips by the water and watch as surf lifesavers patrol the beach. You can visit the Burnie Park and animal reserve, or Australia's biggest eucalypt tree farm.

The Pioneer Village Museum will provide you with a detailed account of the city's history, while at The Makers Workshop you can explore the craft of local and visiting artists, and paper-making, including hand-made roo poo paper and wonderful life-size paper sculptures. Better yet, get your hands wet making your own paper. While it dries there is a cheese tasting area alongside a great cafe on site.
