Guide Falls Farm


Welcome to Guide Falls Farm. Nestled just above the infamous Guide Falls on the North West Coast of Tasmania is Guide Falls Farm. Set on a large acreage, come along and wander through the native gardens and feed the growing family of animals.
Bring the family and your friends and come for a tour of the animal park! Take Ally the alpaca for a walk around the gardens. Feed Edward the emu and the goats, rabbits, sheep, peacocks, deer and llama (just to name a few). We have many beautiful and rare birds.
Bring along some bread and feed the eager chickens and ducks. Or bring a picnic and enjoy an afternoon in the sun watching the cows graze and the lambs chase each other through the paddocks.
The farm is under new management and we will be adding more new and exciting attractions all the time.
The animal park is open 1000 to 1600 Wednesday to Sunday and is available for school and group bookings on Monday and Tuesdays. We will extend opening hours as the weather gets warmer.
We look forward to welcoming you onto the farm soon.

Emu Valley Rhododendron Gardens


The Emu Valley Rhododendron Garden is a stunning garden near Burnie, north-west Tasmania.
The Gardens are a ten-minute drive south of Burnie. The 11-hectare/28-acre garden features over 22,000 select rhododendrons and companion plants, creating a spectacular display between August and January each year. Colourful autumn foliage makes April a good time to visit, too. In addition to the hybrid rhododendrons familiar to gardeners, you can see many wild species of rhododendrons planted to reflect their geographical origins - from Asia Minor, across the Himalayas to China, Japan and to North America.
You can take a number of walks through the Gardens to enjoy the plants and tranquillity of this lush environment. Platypus, echidna, and diverse bird life are routinely sighted, and plantings are enhanced by a number of landscape features include gazebos, bridges, waterways, and a fountain.
The Emu Valley Rhododendron Garden is a partner garden of the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens.
Our tea room is open Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays during August and September, and December through April. Open every day during peak flowering months of October and November. Tearoom is closed from May to end of July. EFTPOS not available.

Anzac Day Dawn Service - Burnie


A Dawn Service will be held at the Burnie Cenotaph.
ANZAC was the name given to the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps soldiers who landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey early on the morning of 25 April 1915 during the First World War (1914-1918).
As a result, one day in the year has involved the whole of Australia in solemn ceremonies of remembrance, gratitude and national pride for all our men and women who have fought and died in all wars. That day is ANZAC Day - 25 April.
A Dawn Service will be held at the Burnie Cenotaph to remember the ANZACs and other War veterans who fought for Australia.

Targa North West


We are very excited to announce Targa Hellyer Gorge will be expanded to encompass much more of the region and become a genuine multi stage rally like Targa Tasmania.
The new event will have a new name, Targa North West, a new date, 18th February, and will base itself in the heart of Burnie to include an Official Finish and Targa Bar on the Saturday night.
The new Targa event promises plenty of excitement for competitors and fans alike with the retention of Hellyer Gorge now being run once in each direction with the longer version of the stage being used. But it is the addition of what many would call 'The greatest tarmac rally stage never used in a Targa event', Savage River, that will encourage competitors from all over the country, to ensure that they are in Burnie in February 2017.
