A good overview of the wool industry

The centre contains a good summary of the wool industry in the area with samples of different wool grades on display. There are wool products also which can be purchased

Stopped in for a quick detour recommend from the lonely planet book and wanted to learn more about the history of Ross and wool industry. There is heaps of information but you can easily get lost. Spent a few minutes and went to the Female Factory site.

There are plenty of nice products for friends, family and yourselve in a range of prices and a little bit of local history. It is free to enter and should not be missed when visiting Ross which has not really changed over many years.

Loved the shop and bought lots of things and found them cheaper compared to outlet stores in Hobart. Very friendly staff helped me out with styles and colours.

Although this is not a accredited Visitor Information Centre id highly recommend this as your first place to visit upon arriving in Ross. The staff are very knowledgeable & full of great ideas of things to do & places to see while visiting Ross

Not the sort of attraction I expected to find in the little town of Ross. As well as the information on the place of wool in Ttasmania there is also a room of local history items.

This was a great attraction, with the history of wool being displayed. In the front area is a beautiful shop with lots of products made from wool.
