As Tasmanian hopping-off points go, Burnie is one of the best. Located on the island’s northern shore, this small city port is well connected to the Tasmanian interior by a network of motorways, but also has plenty to offer in its own right. One of the biggest attractions is the city’s strong culture of handmade arts and crafts, while the local penguin population has been charming visitors for years. Whisky lovers are also known to make a pilgrimage to the city, with Hellyers Road Distillery concocting all manner of traditional single malts, as well as a host of unique creations. Fern Glade Reserve is another popular tourist spot, offering visitors a chance to see platypus in the wild while getting acquainted with Tasmania’s wide variety of flora and fauna. Australian Rules Football is also a big part of Burnie’s charm, and the very successful Burnie Dockers Football Club make their home here.
