Wynyard

Your drive takes you 15 minutes west of Burnie to a ‘must see’ destination, thanks to its Wonders of Wynyard exhibition in this substantial seaside village. View Australia’s largest collection of restored Ford motor vehicles, including a 1903 model believed to be the equal oldest in the world. Here inside the Visitor Information Centre, in which the car collection is housed, take in a small gallery hosting excellent exhibitions of local craft, art and collections.

Ready for outstanding views out to sea and over the rich, fertile fields of the surrounding countryside? Nearby Table Cape is a spectacular flat-topped promontory and Tulips are the key attraction; where the famous tulip farm explodes in colour every September – October. Don’t miss your tour of Table Cape Lighthouse, where it perches impressively on the cliff edge.
