Burnie Athletic Club


The Burnie Athletic Club organised its first carnival on the South Burnie ground on New Year’s Day 1887 when Burnie’s population was about 1,000 and for the first couple of years continued with a picnic entertainment programme.  In 1915 the Burnie Athletic club moved to West Park and hosted the 1915 New Year’s Day Sports Carnival.  Our postal address is: PO Box 2321, Burnie.
