Cressy is predominantly a rural town and had its beginnings in the mid 1850s.

The area of Norfolk Plains which takes in the Cressy district, was at one time the richest wheat growing area in Tasmania. Today oats, barley, peas, beans and poppies (for use in the production of prescription drugs) are grown.

Cressy is known as the "Gateway to Trout Fishing" and is renowned for its great trout fishing in nearby Brumby’s Creek, the Macquarie and Liffey Rivers, and the central highlands lakes. A boat ramp is located outside the township on Fisheries Lane.
