Burnie

 

Burnie is Tasmania’s most westerly city, located on the North West Coast about 40 minutes from Devonport. It has a northerly aspect and is nestled around Emu Bay on Bass Strait.  It is one of only a few cities with a surf beach on its doorstep.  The renovated foreshore belies the industrial history of this place, although the crane still stands out on the shorline of this working port.

The 20,000 residents enjoy a vibrant shopping district that spills onto the beach for seafood and coffee. Burnie has surprising restaurants and cafés to linger in. It has a dynamic cultural life, galleries, performances, exhibitions and community events.

Fantastic food is made in Burnie like whisky and cheese. The best milk in the world for cheese making is produced in the area. There are well stocked delis to tempt you with gourmet treats.

Burnie’s hills hide impressive gardens and parks, and it is surrounded by beautiful beaches, sparkling water and fresh air. In some areas people live in perfect art deco or federation homes and public spaces featuring buildings by contemporary Tasmanian architects and designers. But there is no escaping the presence of a busy container port, the rail hub or the factory framework lining the highway around Emu Bay on the eastern approach to Burnie. A factory which evolved over 75 years manufacturing high volumes of paper for world markets. In its hey day "The Pulp" employed 3500 people, and after 75 years of supporting the families of Burnie, the mill finally ceased operation in June 2010. But paper is still made in Burnie!
