Burnie is positioned between the sparkling blue seas of Bass Strait and the bush and forests of the hinterland.

The clean beaches form a central part of the Burnie coastal lifestyle and community groups work together to protect and care for flora and fauna that also call Burnie home.

The carbon footprint of Burnie is small. This is achieved by the use of renewable energy, water and waste management and a focus on environmental sustainability in all areas of community endeavour. 

The built environment is appreciated for its architectural and heritage value that reflects Burnie’s past but also speaks to Burnie’s future.
