Cruise Ships


Cruise Burnie

The City of Burnie has a 20-year history in providing a world-class meet-and-greet service to the cruise ship industry. 

Building on a single visit in 1999, Burnie now welcomes more than 30 ships a season.  Cruise ship visitation has developed into an integral and valuable part of the region’s tourism economy, dispersing passengers and crew within Burnie and north-west Tasmania.

Burnie's Mayor, councillors and hard-working volunteers are on hand to welcome the cruise ship passengers to our wonderful city, rain, hail or shine.
