Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    WOW how amazing is this “Free” (donation) event - run by volunteers who are passionate about Penguins. We saw Penguins come out hiding & even some come in from the Ocean & climb up the rocks, under the natural habitat & up to view area! A must for anyone & everyone. I had no idea this was even available until I saw it on Facebook Travelling Tasmania… Great advise - don’t worry about booking a tour Bicheno visit the Penguins in Burnie…. We also stayed Somerset Caravan Park - less then 5 minutes drive away

    Lovely peaceful water falls with a running creek walk from the picnic facilities to the falls. Very interesting rock formations.

    Google states that the reserve closes at 5:30pm, however there was a sign that said it closes at sunset which gave us more time than we thought. Plenty of car parking spaces. Toilets and picnic spots available. The reserve itself is quiet and peaceful. We didn’t see any platypus, nevertheless, enjoyed a walk.

    Nestled within a short drive from the heart of Burnie, Tasmania, lies a verdant oasis that captures the essence of tranquility and natural beauty. Burnie Park, a picturesque expanse of rolling green hills, is a tapestry of vibrant flora, including a myriad of tree species, a blooming rose garden, and the vivid hues of rhododendrons. The park's heart beats with the rhythm of Oldaker Falls, cascading into a serene pond where ducks glide effortlessly across the water's surface.
    As you wander along the walking trails, the gentle rustle of leaves and the soft chirping of birds accompany your every step, creating a symphony of nature's melodies. The park's music shell stands as a testament to community spirit, hosting events that bring together the sounds of laughter and music under the open sky.
    Burnie Park is not just a feast for the eyes but also a haven for the soul. It's a place where memories are made, whether it's a family picnic by the barbecues, children's laughter echoing from the playgrounds, or a moment of reflection at the memorial cenotaph. With facilities accessible to all, including the Liberty Swing, the park ensures that beauty knows no bounds.
    This gem of Tasmania is a reminder of the simple joys that life offers—a breath of fresh air, a splash of colour, and the warmth of the community. Burnie Park is more than just a park; it's a celebration of life, nature, and the enduring beauty that surrounds us.
