Hagley

You are here

A small village of 150 people, Hagley is located approximately 30 minutes from Launceston and 25 minutes from Deloraine.

Hagley began in 1825 when William Lyttleton was granted 560 acres of land in the area by the government. He named this land Hagley after his ancestral home in England. The name Hagley was gazetted in April 1866.

There are a number of stately homes located in and around Hagley, including Hagley House, Cliston, Ivylawn and Quamby Estate. The magnificent Quamby homestead is a rare example of Anglo-Indian architecture, showcased by wonderful gardens adjacent to a challenging 9-hole golf course. Quamby was once the residence of Tasmania's first native-born premier, Sir Richard Dry. You can find his grave at St Mary's Church, which was built in the early 1860s.
