A wonderful place to see amazing designs using local materials. Worth a visit and as it is located next to City Park you can stroll there afterwards.

We found this to be an inspiring place for craft. The wood products are second to none, and although the producers goods can be found elsewhere on the island, we found the pricing competitive. There is also a very attractive range of jewellery and clothes. The larger pieces of furniture were wonderful.

Lots of wonderful designs of timber and other local Tasmanian products, very inventive and enjoyable to stroll through. The centre is well designed and staff knowledgeable and welcoming. Recommend a visit when in Launceston, esp if its a rainy day. Gifts, souvenirs and some pieces available for purchase.

The design centre is a must for anyone who appreciates unique, stunningly designed furniture. There are two parts to it. There is the shop area where you can wander around and look at all sorts of creations from huon pine rolling pins and salad servers to beautiful one off pieces of furniture. If my bank account allowed, I would have... More

This building has rooms full of wonderfully designed furniture (amongst other things) made out of equally wonderful Tasmanian woods. I'm particularly enamoured with black hearted sasafrass and blackwood. And after you've finished exploring the centre, you can wander into the City Park next door and enjoy its trees.

I spotted this on Trip Advisor, and popped in after spending time in the City Park (it is in the top corner of the park, on Tamar St, closer to the CBD in a combination of beautiful new buildings and a lovely old one). I was so impressed - there is student work and much work in wood and glass... More
