Be empowered, engaged and excited to move away from rampant commercialism, putting texture and vitality into your world at the Rathmore Ramble with WOOL.
Get caught up in country ambience and have a sense of place emerge at Rathmore in the stunning Upper Derwent Valley, as you commune with platypus in the Dew Rivulet, try your hand at trout fishing, talk with the animals or watch sheep shearing in Rathmore heritage listed shearing shed.
Natural fibre champion Jane Milburn will inspire you to rethink clothing culture and treasure natural Central Highlands and Derwent Valley Tasmanian wool. Up-cycling, patching and visible mending is trending with revival not waste. “Living lightly” is the important message.

Buildings on Rathmore settled in 1828 have been revived for authentic heritage and rustic chic accommodation. Book early if you would like to stay.
