Cressy is a small town located 35km south-west of Launceston in Tasmania, Australia. Cressy, known as the “trout capital of Tasmania”, has taken their claim to heart. With a population, a little under 650 Cressy has trout-themed public art where ever you look, even the street signs. Rumors that the Big Trout was created by Barry Cooda have been greatly exaggerated. The troutification of the town has given the community a great sense of pride.
Not surprisingly Public Art in Cressy is fish themed with the emphasis on trouts.
