Burin Peninsula

The Burin Peninsula is home to the Tom Hollett Memorial Targa Bambina. The Peninsula is located on the south coast of the island of Newfoundland, with its major centre being Marystown.

The Burin Peninsula extends to the southwest from the main island of Newfoundland, separating Fortune Bay to the west from Placentia Bay to the east. It measures approximately 130 km (81 mi) in length and between 15 to 30 kilometres (9.3–18.6 mi) in width. It is connected by a 30 km (19 mi) wide isthmus between Terrenceville and Monkstown.

It was originally named the Buria Peninsula by fishermen from the Basque region during the 16th century.

The Burin Peninsula hosts both Bambina and Targa stages, with the northern part hosting Targa stages in September, and the lower portion hosting Bambina stages.
