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. Below these thumbnails are links to the latest Burnie weather and to the Burnie City Council's website.
