Where are we

We are based in the Northern Midlands of Tasmania, Cressy – known as “Trout Fishing Paradise”. Cressy is undoubtedly the hub of trout fishing in Tasmania. Trout Territory’s central location at Cressy gives them the flexibility to take advantage of the fishing in all kinds of weather and conditions. With so many exciting trout waters within an hour or so of Cressy, anglers have a vast variety to choose from.
