Cressy

Home of the Tasmanian Trout Expo held every September, Cressy is a historically significant town in the heart of the Northern Midlands. Today many of the original homesteads and farm buildings still exist around the tiny township.

Known as Tasmania’s ‘Trout Capital’ for the good fishing in the area, the nearby Macquarie River, a renowned meadow stream, and Brumbys Creek are popular fisheries attracting anglers from all over the world. Cressy is also a perfect base for anglers to be in good proximity to other northern lowlands and central highlands rivers, streams and lakes.

There are a variety of industries located in and around Cressy. The rich agricultural land is used for beef and lamp production, and the plentiful access to irrigation water allows for a large variety of cropping including cereals, vegetables, grass seed and poppy production.

The Tasmanian Trout Expo is held at Cressy on the second last weekend of September each year. The Australian Schools Fishing Competition is also held then.

Cressy was named by Bartholomew Boyle Thomas, an early settler, after the Battle of Crecy, between the English and the French in 1346.

William Brumby built the first building in the area, the Cressy Hotel in 1845.

Cressy became an official township in 1848.
