Weymouth is a small township in northern Tasmania, Australia, on the Pipers River opposite Bellingham and about 60 km from Launceston. It has a very small permanent population; however, it attracts many visitors during the summer months. Weymouth has a beach, a tennis court, a community hall with a playground and a seasonal shop, which after a period of closure, has now reopened.

History[edit]

Back Creek Post Office opened on 1 June 1870 and was replaced by the Weymouth office in 1959.[2]
