Tasmania is one of Australia's best kept secrets. It is a mountainous Island state, which boasts pristine beaches, coastlines and seas, as well as extensive national and regional parkland (over one fifth to be exact!). With a population of over half a million (nearly half of that in the Hobart - the Capital City), there are places in Tasmania that remain untouched.

Burnie - North West Coast

Tasmania's north-west is the gateway to some of the island's most beautiful natural places. Exploring the north-west you'll find classic coastal drives, food trails, stunning national parks and beautiful nature reserves.

Burnie is a port city with an industrial past that has reinvented itself as a vibrant and creative city on a beautiful stretch of Tasmania's north-west coast.  

Here are some videos to get a sense of the Island.
