The jagged contours of Cradle Mountain epitomise the feel of a wild landscape, while ancient rainforest and alpine heathlands, buttongrass and stands of colourful deciduous beech provide a range of environments to explore. Icy streams cascading out of rugged mountains, stands of ancient pines mirrored in the still waters of glacial lakes and a wealth of wildlife ensure there is always something to captivate you. The area is one of the most popular natural areas in Tasmania. A visit will reveal why.

Little Penguin Observation Centre
Parsonage Point, Parklandshttp://www.discoverburnie.net/what-to-see/penguins.html+61437436 803The Little Penguin Observation Centre was constructed at Parsonage Point on the western end of West Beach, but not before hundreds of penguin igloo apartments were hand made and cleverly located by local volunteers. Their latest project involves rebuilding native sea bird habitat further west. Around dusk, from September to March, little penguins noisily waddle ashore to nest in their burrows, and every evening during the season Friends of Burnie Penguins offer free interpretative tours for visitors. It may not have seemed possible once, but Burnie has cleaned up its act when it comes to our burrowing neighbours, with the help of a clear vision and thousands of volunteer hours. The Little Penguin Observation Centre is located on the western end of West Beach linked to the city via a beach boardwalk.
