Walking Tracks and Trails

Shared Pathways and Trails

Burnie boasts a range of walking tracks and trails, both in urban settings and within Council's parks and reserves.

For those who enjoy long walks or cycling, there is also a broader network for you to enjoy or just to connect with facilities, services, and friends.  Connecting our parks and reserves is an extensive network of walking tracks, trails and footpaths. The Coastal Pathway sections along parts of the coast, CBD, and beach, are shared with cyclists.

The Burnie Coastal Pathway

The Burnie Coastal Pathway is a shared path network currently extending from Cooee Red Rock, around the perimeter of the CBD, and through to the Emu River South Burnie/Wivenhoe.

The Pulp and Paper Trail

The Pulp Paper Trail (pictured) makes up part of the Coastal Pathway on the foreshore at South Burnie.

Opposite the remains of the historic paper mill this interpretive walk was designed to honour the men and women who worked at Burnie’s pulp and paper mill between 1937 and 2010.
