Passengers and crew arriving in the Port of Burnie will delight in the warm welcome they receive portside from City of Burnie staff and volunteers. 

The Port of Burnie is located within the heart of Burnie township, a thriving coastal centre on Tasmania's north-west coast. Established in 1827, Burnie is one of Tasmania's oldest ports and is also one of its busiest, with more than five million tonnes of commodities transiting each year. While cruise visitors will enjoy a birds-eye view of Port activities from the ship, unfortunately general access by visitors to the port area cannot be facilitated.

For all cruise ship passengers and crew undertaking independent arrangements in Burnie, there is a free return shuttle bus service that provides transportation from the port to the Information Centre located at the Makers’ Workshop. There are also designated stops at the Burnie Regional Museum and Art Gallery and Burnie’s CBD. Operating times of the shuttle bus service are pre-arranged with ship organisers. The last shuttle bus will return to the port one hour prior to the ship’s scheduled departure.
