In Burnie, every convenience is available, without the crowds and traffic. It's a city of creativity and innovation, with the highest number of artists per capita in the country. Here, you'll have the opportunity to connect with people of all walks of life.
Our West Park apartments front a beautiful beach, so you can hear the waves lapping the sand as you drift off to sleep. West Park is also undergoing an exciting transformation. With a new purpose-built campus opening in 2021, you could be among the first to access these incredible facilities.
