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.

    This is a beautiful place, just a short bus ride from the cruise port.

    It’s self guided, with fairly easy inclines that could prove challenging if you’re physically disabled.

    Watch for the platypus diving around in the pond.

    The food and coffee in the cafe are good. The staff is accommodating, cheerful and take pride in their products.

    Might be one of our favourite things we did on our trip. It's all volunteer run, so, completely free but donations are welcomed to help with little penguin conservation. I thought they were going to be hard to see or further away but they don't care about humans so they're so close you could reach out and touch them. The volunteers are seasoned experts on the Burnie little penguin colony, ask them all the questions you fancy. Make sure you rug up though because it got quite cold and windy down on the bay.

    What a pleasant surprise to see the falls. Seriously a 50m walk from the carpark, accessible to everybody, even with strollers or wheelchairs. Then the falls themselves are visible from their own lookout. Do yourselves a favour and visit when you have a chance.

    My Mum and I had a fantastic day out with Robyn to Stanley & The Nut. We travelled with another couple from our cruise ship Queen Elizabeth. Robyn was very knowledgeable about the local area and nothing was to much trouble. She gave us a lovely & tasty Morning Tea/Lunch with local Fruits & Cheeses. Robyn made some tasty Rhubarb chutney. At the end of the tour was a Wow factor surprise. We recommend this tour next time you are in Burnie Tasmania.

    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.

    Visited Burnie for a port stop from our cruise and booked online. Cherie met us at Makers Market with the warmest smile,she drove our small group around to see Burnie natural scenery of opium and poppy fields. Along the way stopped at Bluehills honey farm to taste different types of honey. Cherie provide us with homemade treats to keep us going throughout the day. Went to the Nut for lunch she rang ahead so our orders were ready she took those that were willing on the cable chair to enjoy lunch at the top.
    We were able to walk around Stanley historical town and visit boat harbour beach.
    Cherie was so knowledgeable and had so much passion for Burnie. Anyone visiting Burnie I would highly recommend Australian wild harvest tour with Cherie.

    What a delightful place. Originally the home of William Henry Oldaker, a place he called Avon, it has Shorewell creek running through it. The park is hilly but the Council have done an outstanding job not only setting it up but also maintaining it. Lots of seats and places to just plonk. Lots of thick grass to lay on. Plenty of up to the minute kids equipment. Off street parking to unload the kids. BBQs, shelters, a performance shell set into the side of the hill ... and oh, the waterfall! Oldaker Falls is at the top of the park and is reached by an easy walking track, with the water from the falls running beside you as you approach.

    Not many city park can boast a waterfall.

    Also contained with in the park is the 175 year old Burnie Inn: the oldest remaining building after white settlement. Naturally, it was a pub. It was moved to the park in 1973 and preserved.

    One of the most outstanding council parks I have visited.

    We called into this Museum and we were delighted with what we saw, and that was a replica of part of early Burnie life. Fascinating !!

    If you are in Burnie, give yourself an opportunity to see something out of the past and what life must have been like 120 plus years ago.

    Highly Recommended.
