Burnie is a port city on the north-west coast of Tasmania, Australia. The town was renamed for William Burnie. The city has a population of about 20,000 people. The city's motto is "non nobis solum" (not for ourselves alone). Burnie's floral emblem is the rhododendron.
Just a short drive east of the city
at Fern Glade, you can view wild platypus in the tranquil
retreat for picnicking along the banks of the Emu River. Up the
hill is the Lactos Cheese Tasting Center.
Penguins are another attraction here. Visit the Little Penguin Observation Center to view these lovable creatures. A great place to visit with the whole family.
