Getting around the Fair
The Tasmanian Craft Fair is spread across 8 venues and 5 galleries throughout the picturesque town of Deloraine. Free shuttle buses depart each venue regularly, or the venues are a short walk from each other if you’re after a healthy stroll.
All venues are wheelchair accessible.
Take A Break: The Australian Breastfeeding Association will again provide a relaxing haven for families at Venue 5 (Community Complex) and Venue 7 (in the Showgrounds secretary’s office).
After the Craft Fair
Enjoy a stroll around Deloraine - there are street sculptures in the main street and more along the river bank. Do the circuit walk of the river - and possibly spot a platypus in the river around dawn or dusk.
Visit Yarns and the excellent museum at the Information Centre or visit one of the cafes for coffee and cake.
For the more adventurous there are some stunning walks up into the Great Western Tiers - the Information Centre has details.
There is a wide range of things to see and do in the North and North-West of Tasmania. A half-day trip from Deloraine can take you to the Tasmanian Copper and Metal Art Gallery at Carrick; touring the wild underground caves around Mole Creek; or explore Liffey Falls and the Highland Lakes district.
Watch the native Tasmanian devils being fed at Trowunna Wildlife Park at Mole Creek, or sample the local produce at Christmas Hills Raspberry Farm, The Honey Farm and award-winning cheeses at Ashgrove Cheese Factory.
Within a day’s drive are the world-renown tourist centres of Cradle Mountain, Strahan, Stanley, the East Coast and of course the major cities of Hobart and Launceston.
Tourism Tasmania’s Discover Tasmania website has a comprehensive listing of things to see and do in the region.
