Experience Burnie

Burnie Car Hire Burnie

Burnie is a port city located on Bass Strait in North West Tasmania, and is the most westerly city in Tasmania. Historically Burnie was a city of makers and producers, and for 100 years after discovery the port of Burnie shipped timber, minerals and produce from the region. The city has not reinvented itself as a creative and vibrant city, with hints of its industrial past still lingering.

The best place to visit local craft and artisans at work is at the Makers Workshop. The workshop is a contemporary museum, arts centre, gallery and craft workshop all in one. Chat with the makers whilst enjoying activities such as paper, cheese, whisky, ceramics, textiles and glass making, printing, painting, sculpting and lots more. Drive downtown and take a stroll along the beachside where you will find a vibrant mix of shops and eateries. Indulge in fresh coffee, seafood and local produce. Burnie also has an art deco flair, with hints of fine architecture still remaining from this era.

Whilst in Bernie, the Emu Valley Rhododendron Garden is an attraction which cannot be missed, located approx. 10 minutes’ drive from downtown. The 28-acre garden features a selection of over 22,000 rhododendrons and plants, creating a spectacular display between August and January each year. There is also a tea room on site to enjoy a bite to eat whilst taking in the tranquillity of the garden. The convenience of having your own hire car means that you can enjoy the number of scenic drives east and west of Burnie which follow the coast. Cross landscapes of farms dotted with boutique producers and coastal surprises including several waterfalls and interesting bush walks.
