The North West is a region full of stunning white beaches, top class restaurants and vineyards. The area is close to pristine wilderness with wide open natural spaces, great for rambling and mountain biking.
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. Take a beachside and downtown stroll and find a vibrant mix of shops and eateries serving up fresh coffee, seafood and local produce. Burnie has an art deco flavour, with fine architectural examples that you can explore on foot.
Latrobe is a river town famous for its heritage and the fresh produce that grows in the region's rich and fertile soils. There are lots of eateries serving fresh produce, plus scenic farm gates and vineyards where you can sample food from the source.
