If in Ross it is worth looking in at the Wool Centre. It is certainly there to sell local merino wool products. But there is also an apartment interesting and well displayed story of the industry in Tasmania. The story of merino wool is well set out and for such a small place, those in Ross who set up this...

We were surprised to see the quality of the Wool Centre environment ,merchandise and displays. Not only does the centre display and sell woolen products but also has got some fascinating displays showing the wool industry, the history of Tasmania and the Ross area in particular. If in Ross or just passing through the area, the Wool Centre is a... More

Someone has gone to a bit of trouble with the display which was worth a look. However, I found the attitude of the women who work in the shop appauling, sadly they let the whole thing down and the township of Ross in general. They were unhelpful, abrupt and more interested in their own agenda. Should you make a purchase... More

It didn't really interest me and the prices for items were better suited for big cities. However the people knew what they were talking about so that was a bonus.

Most product are made in China. Bought one item made in Australia. The lady shop keeper may be friendlier. Tasmania seems to behind in Hospitality Industry.

Interesting showing Australia's growth on the sheeps back and the importance of Tasmania in this. Take time to watch the videos relating to the story of wool.

This is a wool museum but also a Ross history museum. The facility is small but most informative. Feel various grades of wool and see how it is sheared. If you get to talk to the manager she is an added benefit.

We often pop in to check out what is happening at the Wool Centre - and I left having purchased a pair of possum gloves, and one of my daughter in laws also bought some gloves and a pair of thick leggings/socks. Nice range of woolen products and the museum section is also interesting.

As a Tasmanian that travels a lot between Hobart and Launceston I rarely get a chance to stop and visit towns along the way. I had the chance to do this today and called into the Tas Wool Centre. Shame I had to I interrupt a staff member from whatever she was doing at the desk to ask for assistance... More
