Quiet, On the Coast, Entertaining
You don't get a lot of classical music - but that's not why I chose it.
A wonderful base in a fantastic state.
A good place to sample the good old Aussie savoury meat pies and sausage rolls is the Bake house at Penguin a few kilometres from Burnie. It offers friendly service and pies are really delicious. We had a few meat pies- in various flavours and fillings like steak and kidney, curry, potato pie and and a couple of sausage rolls as well.
The chocolate chip cookies which came in packs of six were yummy too and came in handy while we got more hungry as we explored the countryside of NW Tasmania.
Aside from the taste, the bonus for this gem of a bakehouse is that it is waterfront so we enjoyed our delectable baked goods while lapping the scenic beach views! The weather was also perfect- sunny but not too hot , actually it was quite comfy cool!
While there, make sure you look at the rubbish bins with penguins on them!
Taking a bus tour afforded us a chance to visit what seemed to be a tiny waterfalls but nevertheless a natural beauty, PRESTON FALLS.
Around the falls are pristine wilderness unknown beyond! The uinspoilt spectacular natural rich resources are truly inspiring. There's the mountains with its verdant trees and other flora and fauna and yet you are not far from the beaches as the coast is within reach all the time!
Just a tiny town, you can explore Burnie in a few hours really and be fascinated by the peacefulness and cleanliness of the place. Apparently it used to be the dirtiest town in Tasmania at one point and then the residents decided to clean it up and now it has tidiest town in Tasmania in recent years!
