Westbury Reserve is 70 hectares of grassy woodland and eucalypt forest adjacent to Birralee Road. It was purchased for conservation in 1999 because of its natural values and it remains part of the National Reserve Estate.

On 18 June 2020 Premier Gutwein announced their intention to build the Northern Tasmanian high security prison on the Reserve.
