Burnie Rotary Club members are boosters for Burnie. Why? Click on the thumbnails below for some views. Fernglade is a beautiful picnic spot on the Emu River, just two km from the City Centre, and is a favourite haunt of the Platypus: We can often see them foraging in the river at dusk. The Rotary Club holds a barbecue meeting there in January. Burnie is also home to countless families of penguins and we can look into some burrows.
