Where is Burnie?

Burnie is a north coast town originally vital as a timber port but now as the largest container terminal in Tasmania. It is located 152 kms north west of Launceston on the Bass Highway. Much of the State's produce leaves from Burnie to make its way to the mainland or to the markets of the world. Logging of the dense local timber provided building material for the young colonies of Melbourne and Adelaide.

Tin was discovered in 1871 and mining expanded the town. Burnie began to grow rapidly as a major port for the region. Agricultural products, tin and timber were the main exports and when a paper mill was established in 1937, there was a massive expansion of the port and the town. Horticulture remains a major production feature of the area.
