CHRIS McCann scored one and made two for Charlie Austin as Burnley bounced back from a run of three straight defeats in emphatic fashion.
The Clarets didn't have it all their own way, as after taking an early lead they had to come from behind to secure the three points.
McCann put Eddie Howe's men in front in the seventh minute by after finding himself unmarked to head in Joseph Mills' left wing cross at the far post.
But Peterborough, who arrived at Turf Moor without a league point, scored twice against the run of play to give themselves an unlikely lead.
The first came from the penalty spot after Nathan Mendez-Laing was brought down by Michael Duff, and Lee Tomlin converted.
The second came three minutes later after Martin Paterson lost possession and Peterborough moved the ball forward freely, with Mendez-Laing providing the finish across Lee Grant.
Burnley equalised six minutes before the break with Michael Bostwick turning in Austin's low shot, after the striker was put through by McCann.
But Austin will want to claim the goal as his own after adding two in the second half.
McCann squared for Austin to finish well and restore Burnley's lead, before being brought down by goalkeeper Bobby Olejnik and recovering to score from the spot.
Junior Stanislas wrapped up the win in the 86th minute with his second of the season.
