Cradle Coast campus

We’ve opened our brand-new waterfront campus at West Park in Burnie - a place of learning, cultural and recreational activities for many decades. Here, you’ll get to make the most of interactive learning in our immersive teaching rooms, connect with your peers in social spaces, and be part of a vibrant community precinct.

Our new campus is distinctive to the Cradle Coast - its shape reflects the headlands that stretch along the rugged Bass Strait coastline, while the green roof speaks to the rich North West landscapes. The Domestic Arts building - the last surviving structure from the original Burnie High School - lives on as an important feature of the campus, honouring the history of the site while celebrating its future.

Enjoy the neighbouring beach and boardwalk between classes, or head downtown to check out the nearby shopping district.

As part of our city move, we’re introducing an exciting range of courses that serve the region and allow people from our community to study closer to home.
