Romaine is a suburb of the City of Burnie in north-west Tasmania, Australia.

The Romaine Reserve is 12.69ha of park lands that runs down the eastern side of the suburb, along Romaine Creek. The Reserve contains both remnant and exotic vegetation, with large mountain ashes, white gums, substorey blackwoods and man ferns. The walking tracks link up with Brooklyn Reserve. Romaine Creek is home to Engaeus yabbimunna a freshwater crayfish.

The Emu Valley Rhododendron Garden was created in 1981 and is now a tourist attraction.
