Tasmanian Wool Centre

Galleries, Museums and Collections Historical Sites and Heritage Locations Landmarks and Buildings Shopping and Markets

The Tasmanian Wool Centre, in the midlands historic village of Ross, is a leading attraction that promotes the values and qualities of wool to visitors. Together with one of Tasmania’s largest retail areas dedicated to woollens, there are informative, well presented museum galleries to explore the wool industry beginnings and heritage of this vibrant village.
In the retail area there is a style, colour and price to suit everyone. An important foundation principle of the business is to promote Australian wool in all its diversity. Every attempt is made to stock Australian made garments and then Australian wool content in those that are crafted elsewhere.
Entering the Wool Exhibition gallery , the scent of sheep’s wool pervades the air. A re-created shearing shed, complete with thrown fleece on its sorting table and manual wool press provide a glimpse of past times. Many breeds of sheep’s wool are on view to feel and inspect.
In the adjoining room, the Heritage Exhibition gallery provides snapshots of significant milestones in Ross’ development. The Ross Bridge, Female Factory and Horton College are permanent features together with changing short-term exhibitions.
A Visitor Information Service completes this must-see attraction in Ross.
