Westbury is a classic Georgian village bursting with old English charm and is only a short 20 minute drive from Launceston.
It is a quaint historic town with plenty of attractions. Its delightful streetscape includes stately inns, churches, homesteads, shops and public buildings restored to their former glory. Many now trade as antique shops and galleries showing the work of local artists and photographers. Shaded by elm, oak and chestnut trees, the beautiful Village Green at Westbury is the perfect place for a relaxing stroll or picnic. Just a short walk away from the Village Green you will find the Town Common, which has always served as a recreation area, but was once also the site for brick making for the bricks used in many of the town's historic buildings.
Westbury’s Pearn’s Steam World boasts the largest collection of antique steam engines in the world and the 170 year-old open garden and hedge maze at Westbury Maze and Tea Rooms are definitely worth a visit.
Westbury is a delightful base for exploring the many nearby attractions, from Launceston and the Tamar Valley to the gems of Tasmania's north-west.
