The City of Burnie is nestled on the shores of Emu Bay on Tasmania’s north west coast. Burnie has a proud industrial past and is a gateway to Tasmania’s wilderness with fantastic beaches, pure air, rich agricultural land, great produce and endless experiences.
There is no escaping the presence of a busy container port, the rail hub or the skeleton of ‘The Pulp’ lining the highway around Emu Bay on the eastern approach to Burnie. It’s the hidden gems you will find here; Hellyer’s Road Whiskey Distillery, Guide Falls Farm, The Rhododendron Garden, The Penguin Observatory (check out the Penguin live feed) or the many short walks in the area, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
