The Burnie International is a professional tennis tournament played on outdoor hard courts. It is currently part of the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) Challenger Tour and the ITF Women's Circuit. It is a $75,000 level tournament for the Challenger Tour and a $60,000 level tournament for the Women's Circuit, although it was previously a $25,000 level tournament before it was upgraded in 2014. It was held annually in Burnie between 2003 and 2015, but didn't take place in 2016 due to a need for court upgrades.[1]

Prior to 2016, the event was also known as the McDonald's Burnie International. From 2017 to 2019 it will be known as the Caterpillar Burnie International.[2]
