Car Rental Burnie Airport

Come on down to Burnie, a vibrant evolving city on the north-west coast of Tasmania. Australia’s island state (‘Tassie’) is also known as the Holiday Isle. Tassie may be separated from the mainland by a choppy stretch of water, but it’s a cinch to get to the port city of Burnie by plane. Daily flights are available from Melbourne, only an hour away. Jump in your hire car at Burnie Airport, located 17 kilometres west near Wynyard, and you’ll be in the centre of the city in just 20-minutes. The airport can also whisk you to King Island, in the middle of Bass Strait, famed for its unspoilt beaches, world-class golf courses and most of all, its gourmet food exports. 

Located in a lovely pocket of the state, Burnie is your base for some wonderful nature adventures. A crisp, cool climate makes it comfortable to chilly outdoors, while long hours of sunshine mean summers here are pleasantly warm. Fertile farmland makes the region prime territory for cheese-making and vegetable growing. So basically, you’ll be tucking into some delicious food made with fine local produce. Stock up on supplies and talk to the growers and artisans at the Burnie Farmers’ Market. There’s also a fantastic range of restaurants and cafes to choose from, good coffee, bakeries and delis. For the classic combo of fish and chips, head to Fish Frenzy. Known for quality seafood, it’s a popular spot for interstate and overseas visitors that visit the port on cruise ships.

The mix of Burnie’s fresh air and clean water also helps Hellyers Road Distillery turn out top-notch vodka and award-winning single malt whisky. Take a tasting tour at the largest boutique distillery in Australia and remember to enjoy responsibly. Flowers also flourish around these parts. Wynyard is filled with fields of tulips. And Burnie is home to a 12-hectare rhododendron garden, the most outstanding in Australia. To experience the blooms in peak season, stick around in spring – between September and November.

Discover beautiful Burnie and beyond in the comfort of your hire car

Keen for the beauty of some raw nature? Just an hour to Burnie’s west, Stanley is your ticket to the Tarkine where you can revel in some rugged Tasmanian wilderness. The Tarkine is the largest temperate rainforest in Australia and one of the biggest in the world. If you’re looking to drive further to the scenic wild west coast, stop overnight in Stanley before taking on Strahan and the Franklin-Gordon River. This charming fishing village is known for its famous landmark, The Nut – a 152-metre high volcanic outcrop – which you can also check out from a chairlift. Eat fresh seafood and real Tasmanian fare at the Stanley waterfront and see a colony of penguins trek across the sands before settling in for the night.

When you’re ready for an experience of epic nature, head for the alpine adventure that awaits you in Cradle Mountain, 90-minutes south of Burnie Airport. This is world-heritage listed wilderness that you won’t soon forget. Climb the mountains, walk around pristine Dove Lake, fish in the streams and visit Fury Gorge, the deepest gorge in Australia. Though Tassie might look small on the map, you can be sure it punches above its weight when it comes to a stack of great, wild getaways.

Your hire car makes it easy to enjoy the best of Burnie

Back on the shores of Emu Bay, Burnie offers laid-back beachside strolls and big skies. Rolling hills and rainforests surround this former industrial town that once proudly served silver mines and pulp mills until they closed. While the east of the city still reflects this past of paper factories and shipping containers, today Burnie boasts a budding scene of artists and makers. 

You can’t go past the shiny steel Makers’ Workshop shimmering over the water on the west side of the city. This cultural hub houses makers’ studios and exhibition spaces, and you can even shop for gourmet cheeses here. A thriving creative industry has taken over to write Burnie’s next chapter. Modern new buildings and fresh energy are shaping its future, led by some of Tasmania’s top architects and designers. This lively city of 20,000 inhabitants offers great food, good shopping, and a friendly vibe. Choose Burnie as your gateway to enjoy the diverse environments of Northern Tasmania.
