Burnie / Tasmania
The aspiring city owes its prosperity to the retail industry, its function as a ferry port and its integration into the railway network of Tasmania. Already in the last century tin was found in the region, which was shipped from Burnie. Today a paper mill is the largest employer in the city.
A special attraction is the Pioneer Village Museum with memorabilia of the early pioneer days in Tasmania.
The Guide Falls (Waterfall) near Burnie and a series of gardens invite you to relax.
On the riverbank of "Fern Glade" there are quiet places for picnics and at the western end of the beach invites the "Penguin Observation Centre" for a visit.
