Burnie cruises

Gateway to Northern Tasmania, Burnie is one of the best places to see Australia’s awe-inspiring animals in their natural habitat. The port spans from the Mersey River Valley to the edges of the dry Northern Midland plains on the northwest coast of Tasmania.

One of Australia’s oldest cities, founded in 1827, Burnie was once known as Emu Bay. Today at Emu River and Emu Valley you can still see native Australian wildlife. Enjoy some time out in the peaceful gardens made up of 20,000 rhododendrons or walk along the riverside lined with wild orchids. Get a great view of the coast and city from the Wilf Campbell Memorial Lookout above Burnie.
