Cressy image

Cressy is a rural township that sits below the Great Western Tiers on the Norfolk Plains and is home to the well-known Tasmanian Trout Expo. Cressy is Tasmania's only 'troutified' township as the local area is a mecca for fly fishing. Known as the 'Gateway to Trout Fishing Paradise' the town offers access to Brumby's Creek, and the Weirs, along with the Macquarie, Lake and Liffey rivers - all top spots that attract anglers from around the world. The area of Norfolk Plains, which takes in the Cressy district, was once the richest wheat growing area in Tasmania. Today more specialised crops are grown such as poppies for the pharmaceutical industry. Cressy is a 20-min drive (36 km) from Launceston.
