Burnie is the gateway to scenic Tasmania and Australia's fifth largest port, boasting a deep, natural harbor. Within its interior lie the rain forest and Cradle Mountain National Park, a World Heritage Site. The gentle rolling hills that grace this area include rich farmlands and pastures that produce some of the finest Merino wool in the world. Northern Tasmania is also rich in picturesque villages and historic houses, some dating from the Georgian colonial era.
These English gardens are a haven for bird life and feature a miniature thatched cottage with working watermill.
