Westbury - Cities, Towns and Localities

Check out the display of containers

Only 34 km from Launceston, is the historic town of Westbury renown for it’s English country character, unique Village Green and hawthorn hedge rows. Laid out in 1828 by Lt Governor Arthur, who believed Westbury would develop into the main gateway to Tasmania’s North West, it was initially occupied with soldiers and convicts. Westbury flourished during the coaching era and continued on with the arrival of the Western Railway in 1871, but it never reached it’s planned potential.

Some of the many attractions include the National Trust property the ‘White House’, a 1840s building containing antiques such as cycles, horseless carriages and 17th century oak furniture and toy museum.

The district of Westbury is also where one of Tasmania’s most famous woodcarvers Mrs C A ‘Nellie’ Payne lived. Some of her best carvings are to be found in St Andrews Church, that includes the ‘Seven Sisters’ chancel screen, the pulpit and lectern.

Additional attractions include a steam museum with reputedly the largest collection of steam driven engines in the southern hemisphere. You should also take the time to visit Quamby Bluff and Liffey Falls, Pearn’s Steam World and The Maze.
