East Coast Tasmania Attractions
The Tasmanian Wool Centre: Traces the evolution of Ross from its early days as a garrison town. Japanese buyers frequently pay world record prices for the extra superfine Merino wool from this area, and the centre displays samples, production techniques and finished articles. A number of interesting tours can be taken from the Centre, including the restored Female Factory, a probation centre for female convicts and their babies.
