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

Exceptionally elegant furniture here showcasing Tasmanian wood and the skills of UTAS graduating design students. Also lovely glass, and jewellery, all inspired by the beauty and wildness of the Tasmanian environment. Truly something different, and a place of quality.

Amazing designs by our designers. Very innovative in their ideas. We enjoyed all the different pieces of furniture for their intrinsic beauty. I love to see women getting out there and designing the glass the jewellery were fantastic.

The entire area give me a zen feel, spacious at the exhibition hall with most of the art pieces crafted by wood. It is not a big hall but it does take time to go through the introduction of each piece. Love the design especially the chairs. There is also a shopping area where you can purchase the furnitures and... More

This place has some awe inspiring pieces of furniture. The craftsman ship is beautiful. It is wonderful how Tasmania is at supporting their own artists. This was evident in many shops. There is no set charge however a donation is encouraged.

Recent name change to Design Tasmania Centre. Entry is now by donation. Mens Shed and Woodworkers' Association members must visit, to see truly exquisite and innovative craftsmanship. Several large display rooms, all with wall panel heating that take time to warm up, so don't visit first thing in the morning if you feel the cold. Also be careful with backpacks... More
