Burnie: tourist information

Burnie is a large port situated on Emu Bay, with cargo shipping being the main industry. Potatoes were a relatively large industry in Burnie, although tin mining took over, when tin was discovered in Waratah. Silver was also found at Rosebery and Zeehan, and so the Emu Bay Railway became very busy transporting all of these goods to Burnie. Unfortunately the railway is not open to passengers.

However, there are plenty of other things to keep you occupied in Burnie. There is spectacular scenery around Burnie with some beautiful waterfalls, including the Guide Falls. For views of the area head to the Fern Glade and Roundhill Lookouts. As well as admiring the views, nature lovers should also visit the Burnie Park and the Emu Valley Rhododendron Gardens.

Other places of interest include the Burnie Regional Art Gallery, Lactos Cheese Factory and the interesting Pioneer Village Museum.

There are several reasonable places to stay in Burnie, and a number of good eating places in the area.
