Upper Castra is a small village outside Ulverstone in Tasmania. It is located in the Central Coast Council municipal area. The word castra is meant as “camp”, and Upper Castra is so named because it is further inland from Castra.
Upper Castra is connected to the Coast by Castra Road, which goes through the villages of Sprent, Spalford, Abbotsham and connects to Main Road in Ulverstone. It is bounded on the east by the Wilmot River, to the south by Nietta and to the west by Preston and South Preston.
The two nearest primary schools are at Sprent and Wilmot and the nearest high school is Ulverstone High School. The Don College is the closest public college.
