The Centre consists of:

* the retail area offering fine wool products

* a wool exhibition area outlining the history of the wool industry in Tasmania, and

* the history museum telling the fascinating story of Ross' past.

The wool exhibition and history museum both feature audio-visual displays and many interesting artefacts. The Feel-and-touch wool display allows visitors to experience wool produced by a range of sheep breeds, and of course features the superfine merino wool the region is renowned for.

About Us - The Tasmanian Wool Centre - Ross is a not-for-profit organisation and any funds generated by the retail area are directed to restoration projects around Ross and to the support of community groups in the area.

The Tasmanian Wool Centre also houses the Ross Visitor Information Centre for help with all your holiday enquiries. Ross is a beautifully preserved Georgian village with many fine stone buildings and lots of history to explore. Visitors are charmed by the elm-lined streets, the heritage and the relaxed rural setting.
