“Customers are a hassle”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014 via mobile

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 and still had to wait for her to finish what she was doing before she came over (I was the only customer in the shop). The condescending attitude finished it off for me and I left without spending the money I had burning in my pocket. And they wonder why tourists don't take time to spend money here ...

“Informative display”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

Very informative display and overview of Tasmanian wool/sheep industry - some interactive displays to touch the wool samples, etc. Quite a lot of local Tasmanian history which was to be expected - good place to go to find out more about the town of Ross and its' history. Some beautiful products in the shop - seemed expensive but very nice/good quality.

“You need a driving rest sometimes and Ross is a good point”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

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 a visit. There is a great wool museum, but most of all we enjoyed browsing at the wide range of woollen clothing or accessories such as beanies, gloves etc. We bought two items, one of which was on sale, making the overall purchase worth it. After leaving the Wool Centre, we drove over the Ross stone bridge on our way to Hobart.

“Very insightful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

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 Ross from the Hobart side (turning right) you drive over a small beautiful bridge which has a very interesting story behind it!

Overall definitely a town to visit if you are driving past.
