  • Profile

    Circular Head, 90 km west of Burnie, is the heart of Tasmania's far north west region, and is the focus of one of Australia's richest agricultural regions. Smithton's diverse nature is one of the keys to its success, with strong pockets of dairy and crop farming, timber and fishing. It is the economic and industrial centre of the town with some 3,500 residents, and services the entire region of around 8,500 people. The home of McCain Foods', Smithton also has the southern hemispheres largest hardwood timber mill at Gunns Timber, along with specialist miller Britton Bros among its major employers. Nearby at Edith Creek is ground breaking contract UHT packer Classic Foods, opening up new markets into Asia for Tasmania's pristine products.
