Wonderful town with rich history! Our self-guided, no-cost tour was easy to navigate and included Visitor Information Centre & Makers Workshop (great for artistic souvenirs); beautiful Burnie Park (with majestic waterfall and rose garden); Regional Art Gallery (impressive photographic display) and the Regional Museum (an absolute must-see with authentically recreated 1900 street scene). All topped off with a sensational seafood pizza and glass of wine at Mecca in the wonderful old Burnie Hotel. Read Less

A visit to the tourist centre is a must and try the beautifully fresh Tasmanian Scallops at one of the fish and chip shops in town.

These guys are bending over backwards to welcome you to Bunrie which is trying very hard to position itself as an artisan city. The museum showing the tough beginnings this place began under is particularly good.

Burnie had a complimentary shuttle to take the passengers into the small town. Friendly locals & very walkable. Got to try the "scallop" pie at Banjo's Bakery Cafe. Free wifi at the city hall.

Working port requires free shuttle bus into town and return. Very long lines waiting for bus from ship. Very friendly town with huge volunteer group. Penguins can be seen in their burrows from the boardwalk.

The port is an industrial area with a sawmill. We couldn't see the town for the mountain of wood chips and mill. We arrived on a Sunday and bus service from the port was limited.

Burnie is an ok town to go to. With a few interesting places such as, museum, shopping area and sites around. The courtesy bus was good from the Port as you weren't allowed to walk in the dock area. It is only a small town though, so if you haven't booked excursion you may find you can see a lot of it in a couple of hours. We wanted to see the penguin observation area, but this wasn't open during the day so that was disappointing. Read Less

The TI person let us know that we could catch a free shuttle to the Emu Valley Rhododendron Garden. The shuttle was a short walk which was pleasant enough. The garden is staffed by volunteers as was our shuttle driver. All were very pleasant and knew their jobs well. The gardens are not to be missed and very beautiful. The entrance fee was not very expensive and we had a very nice snack when we returned to their building. If you enjoy gardens, don't miss this! We really liked the town. It was small but had all the stores you would need if you forgot something. People were very friendly. Read Less

Our expectations were higher. Burnie just didn't have much to offer, based on what we saw. We tried to find a taxi to visit the distillery on our own, but were unable to get one even after two merchants called for us.
