Attraction details
Reviewed January 15, 2014

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 helpful when I wrote asking a question regarding a Ross ancestor

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 stop should be at the Tasmanian Wool Centre. It's on Church Street, and there's lots of free parking.

The Wool Centre has a number of exhibits that describe the wool trade, with lots of purchase opportunities for fine wool products. When we were there, it was free admission, but we saw information boards ready for display that indicated a forthcoming admission charge.

Here, you should pick up a free walking map of the town, which shows how to get to the Ross Bridge and the Ross Female Factory. A visit to both of these will reinforce your decision to take the side trip off the highway!!
