Ross is a delightful stop on the road from Launceston to Hobart, actually it is just off the main road. It is beautiful entering the town through an avenue of shady trees. The town has a very wide lawned median strip with wooden seating and stone tables, as well as parking bays. The Wool Centre looked interesting so we paid... More

Spontaneous stop to Ross on the way to Launceston from Hobart. I was a lot more interesting than I had expected. The wool centre is a museum about the History of Ross and the wool industry of Australia. The shop attached to the centre was a bit below average. It was quite pricey, however very good quality. If you enter... More

This was an interesting place to visit and the woollen products on sale were very good quality. There was quite a variety of items from socks to jumpers / dresses / coats. Not cheap but the fine wool was well crafted.

This place also doubles as the information centre for Ross. The is a small history of wool in Tasmania display (no where as large as the centre in Geelong) and an interesting museum about the area which I would have liked more time to read. The centre also had some lovely woollen garments for sale of good quality. Staff very... More

Lively town to stop. The wool centre is well worth a visit. Free entry (donation requested) with very hands on information. Lovely shop selling woolen products as well

This is an interesting place not for the goods on sale but for the history of sheep and wool production in Australia. It give you a pretty good picture of the history of wool in Australia from the 19th century to the present. Worth while and the products that are on sale are good as well.

Every so often, you follow advice that takes you off the main route - in this case, the Midland Highway between Launceston and Hobart. We're glad we did! The town of Ross is about the half-way point of this trip, and a great place to break the journey. Ross has three attractions to interest you, along with lunch facilities. First... More

Beautiful woollen wear but the hero was the historical display at the back. I could have spent far longer there and it was a snapshot of colonial times. Don't ,iss it and leave a generous donation!
