Tasmania's North West

Follow the main streets of the City Centre to the Burnie foreshore, a city by the sea.  A block from the central business district West Beach is connected by boardwalk to the Makers' Workshop and the penguin habitat on the western end of the beach.

A proud tradition of Surf Life Saving Clubs and championships, the modern Surf Club building also boasts a beachfront restaurant and café.

  • An aquatic water feature
  • Picnic shelters
  • Open grassed space
  • Electric BBQ’s
  • Children’s playground
  • Volleyball nets on the beach
  • Half court basketball area

Take a walk along the newest section of boardwalk, take a glimpse into the 5th largest container port in Australia, watch the dance of the forklifts as they move containers bringing in essential products or loading up to export Tasmanian made to the world.

Take a selfie against the backdrop of West Beach, with the aid of a gallery frame and camera rack to make sure everyone is in the shot.  Upload your pictures to #discoverburnie to share your experience.

People from North West Tasmania celebrate with their families, dazzling fireworks display and bonfires as they come together to herald in the new year.
