Silversea Luxury Cruises A Burnie, Tasmania

Burnie, Tasmania

Burnie overlooks Emu Bay, on the north-west coast. This proudly industrial city is Australia’s fifth largest container port and a vibrant place to visit. Burnie was once surrounded by dense rainforest, but this has slowly disappeared, while fortunes were made felling and milling timber. The paper and pulp mill on the city’s outskirts operated from 1938 to 1998. Burnie was first explored by Bass and Flinders and was known as Emu Bay when it was settled by the Van Diemen’s Land Company in 1827. View more

Today, Burnie has a population of almost 19,000. Burnie experiences temperate conditions, with an average maximum of 70 degrees Fahrenheit (21 degrees Celsius) in January and 56.5 degrees Fahrenheit (13.5) degrees Celsius in June.

Excursões em Burnie, Tasmania

Caves & Wildlife

Gunns Plain Cave is a stunning underground formation, rich in colours and crystals. This excursion provides the opportunity to some of the island state's picturesque countryside as well as one of the best examples of limestone formations in Australia, along with a stop to see some of Australia's native fauna with a stop at a wildlife park.


Gunns Plains

Depart the pier to Gunns Plains, a prosperous farming district located approximately 45 minutes south of Burnie. This picturesque hidden valley has a large number of high-grade limestone caves and is arguably one of Tasmania's best. The cave system was discovered in 1906 and consists of a series of caverns and short passages. After descending a flight of stairs, wind your way through the caves during a guided tour. You will see an underground river and glow worms as well as the pretty 'ribbon' stalactites.


Wing's Wildlife Park

After your journey underground, head above ground with your final destination being Wing's Wildlife Park. See Tasmanian Devils, quolls, and many other native wildlife and farm creatures including reptiles, emus and kangaroos or perhaps take the opportunity to visit the animal nursery. The park is over 106 acres and free time here is unstructured so plan to first see those exhibits you most want.


Take a brief drive through Burnie to learn about this Tasmanian gateway to the north. Sit back and relax for the scenic drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves an extensive amount of walking on gravel paths, concrete paths and hiking trails, and rough a path. The Caves include 54 steps to ever and exit the caves and 240 steps inside the cave. Also guests must be able to negotiate a 10-rung ladder. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility but not and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Comfortable clothing and walking shoes are recommended.

Historic Highfield & The Nut

Board your coach at the pier and depart for Stanley at the far northwest region of Tasmania.


Highfield House

After a scenic drive through the historic village of Stanley your first stop is Highfield Estate. It is considered the birthplace where European settlers first established themselves in 1824, when Van Diemen's Land Company was granted 250,000 acres (10,117 hectares) in Stanley by King George IV. The house is a rare example of architecture from the Regency period and is characterised by geometric yet elegant decoration. Convict barracks, barns, stables, chapel and large ornamental gardens were features of the estate. Today you will have a chance to visit this unique colonial time capsule with a guided tour around the property.


The Nut

After your tour, re-board the coach for the short transfer to The Nut, Stanley's most famous attraction. It is a sheer-sided bluff and all that remains of an ancient volcanic plug. Take a cable car up to the top of The Nut for unsurpassed views of the surrounding area. Walk to the lookout and indulge your creative side with this marvellous photo opportunity.


After taking the cable car back to the base of The Nut you will board your coach for a scenic drive back to Burnie.

Wednesday, 08 February, 2017 - Burnie to Cradle Mountain


Depart the ship in Burnie, and head south, deep into the wilderness state, passing through some beautiful Tasmanian towns where a stop will be made to enjoy some morning tea.


In 1827 Joseph Fossey saw a dramatic mountain peak at the northern end of what is now the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, in the World Heritage Area. He immediately named the peak Cradle Mountain, and as soon as you see it you will know why he chose the name.


The mountain is one of the favourite features in the park and is surrounded by stands of native deciduous beech (wonderfully colourful in autumn), rainforest, alpine heathlands and buttongrass.


A lunch of fresh local produce and wines at a local café will be provided.


On arrival at your hotel for the next two nights, the remainder of the afternoon is at your leisure to get settled before dinner. Peppers Cradle Mountain Lodge is a superb showcase of the best Cradle Mountain has to offer with warm hospitality, sensational local food and wine, indulgent spa treatments, breathtaking scenery and magnificent wilderness surrounds. Set discreetly within the wilderness setting, the Lodge provides the perfect haven to escape, rejuvenate, indulge and explore.


The resort offers a selection of easy, self-guided walks, providing the opportunity to spot a wombat or the elusive platypus and some spectacular King Billy pines, which are up to 1500 years old. In the Waldheim Alpine Spa (treatments at own expense), experience complete relaxation with beautiful views of the wilderness.


Overnight at Peppers Cradle Mountain Lodge


Thursday, 09 February - Cradle Mountain


This morning after a leisurely breakfast, join the group as they make their way down to the icy streams that cascade down the mountainsides. The image of the ancient pines reflected in the still glacial lakes is stunning.


The track to the top of the mountain (1,545 metres above sea level) is an eight-hour return walk, but most of the group will likely opt for one of the shorter, easier walks around Dove Lake. Any guest wishing to undertake a more rigorous walk may certainly do so.


Lunch will be a casual affair today (i.e. picnic-style) and after a day of amazing landscapes we will return you to your accommodation to enjoy the resort.


Dinner is again in the central lodge of the resort.


Overnight at Peppers Cradle Mountain Lodge


Friday, 10 February - Cradle Mountain to Hobart


After breakfast, meet your guide and depart Cradle Mountain to make your way to back to 'civilisation', stopping along the way for lunch before arriving into Hobart in the early afternoon.


An introduction to Hobart's city sights highlights the diversity of this multi-cultural city. Hobart is Tasmania's state capital and the second oldest city in Australia behind Sydney. First settled in 1804, the early population consisted largely of convicts. Hobart's early life revolved very much around the waterfront, frequented by whalers and colonial traders so as you walk around this area your guide will tell you colourful stories of those days.


Descending onto Salamanca place, famous for its market and historic warehouses, wander around the classic colonial sandstone architecture of buildings such as Parliament House. The Gardens are known world-wide for their exotic tree collection and fuchsia displays, and also have a large collection of Tasmanian native plants. A short stroll takes you to the historic Government House. Lastly, travel to the pinnacle of Mount Wellington, which forms a spectacular backdrop to Hobart city. The amazing views from the 1300 metre summit is sure to make a lasting memory of your trip.


Check-in to the hotel and freshen up before enjoying dinner and a well-earned night's sleep.


Overnight at the Hotel Grand Chancellor
