Hagley is a small town of 150 people, approximately 30 minutes from Launceston and 25 minutes from Deloraine.

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

There are a number of stately homes located in and around Hagley, including Hagley House, Cliston, Ivylawn and Quamby.

Quamby was the home of the first native-born premier of the state, sir Richard Dry. You can find his grave at St Mary's Church, which was built in the early 1860s.

Quamby has become the Quamby Golf and Country Club and boasts an 18-hole golf course.

Next to the church is Hagley Farm School and Environment Centre.  It was one of the first two area schools in Tasmania, begun in 1931 in a building erected in 1865
