The Tasmanian Wool Centre, in the midlands town of Ross, showcases Tasmania’s wool industry.
The Tasmanian Wool Centre specialises in distinctive, high-quality wool products, manufactured from locally produced fine wool. The Wool Exhibition celebrates the Tasmanian and Australian wool industry with a number of displays that include samples of superfine wool cloth and garments. You can browse the exhibits and visit the gift shop to choose from range of blankets, clothing, wool craft and other Tasmanian craft items.
The Tasmanian Wool Centre also features the Heritage Museum. Here, you will find interactive displays and self-guided tours interpreting the colonial and convict history of the local area.
Established in 1808, Ross is one of Tasmania’s earliest rural settlements and is located in Tasmania’s premier wool growing area. Superfine Merino wool produced here has often fetched world-record prices, and is exported to markets in Asia and Europe.
Ross is just over an hours’ drive from Hobart (121 kilometres/75 miles).
