The Burnie port along with the forestry industry provides the main source of revenue for the city. Burnie was the main port for the west coast mines after the opening of the Emu Bay Railway in 1897. Most industry in Burnie was based around the railway and the port that served it.After the hand over of the Surrey Hills and Hampshire Hills lots, the agriculture industry was largely replaced by forestry.
