Carrick is an old historic township 17 kilometres from Launceston. The picturesque Liffey River crosses the western end of the town.

There are a number of interesting historic buildings in Carrick, including St Andrews Church (1848), Balmoral (1851), the Old Watchhouse (1837), Carrick Inn (1833), old Plough Inn (1841), old Prince of Wales Hotel (1840), Hawethorne Villa (1875), and the Old Mill House (1867).

The Liffey River was originally called the Penny Royal Creek, and Carrick was first called Lyttleton.

A more recently established attraction is the Tasmanian Copper Gallery, where you can view and buy original artworks made from copper.

AGFEST is one of Australia's biggest agricultural field days, and is held nearby over the first weekend in May each year.
