From humble beginnings in 2001 with 25 events, it has now grown to over 100 events!
Burnie Shines links together many small to medium events, to create a Burnie-made celebration each spring. It is then presented to the people of Tasmania, inviting them to visit Burnie and indulge in a feast of exhibitions, events, performances and parties.
Burnie Shines proves that something wonderful is created when many small events are collated and presented collectively, producing a multi faceted program with something for everyone. Everyone benefits! It is the working together that makes the Burnie Shines program unique.
