looking into Deloraine

Deloraine is recognised as a major art and crafts centre.  Situated at the foothills of the Great Western Tiers, on the banks of the Meander River, it has a beautiful natural environment.  As a result, it has become a centre for artists and crafts people.

It is no wonder then, that at Deloraine: 

  • the Tasmanian Craft Fair is held every year, in November.  This event attracts 30,000 visitors every year.
  • there is an abundance of galleries showcasing artwork like pottery, metalwork, paintings, photographs, furniture and more.
  • you can view the "Streetscape Sculptures" which provide a glimpse into the everyday life of the town.  The works depict musicians, youth, churchgoers, crafts people, greens, farmers, hippies, Aborigines, axemen and service groups.
  • at the Visitor Centre, you can discover the stories of the valley in "YARNS".  This is a four panel story of the region depicted in silk.  Also included is an audio-visual presentation which will enhance your appreciation of the work.
  • at the Visitor Centre, you can visit the Folk museum which reflects the life of a country publican and his family.

This town equals art and crafts it would seem.

But there's more.  How about:

Deloraine train park

I came across the adorable Train park. It is located on the northern bank of the Meander River. It is a pleasant and relaxing place to have a break and for kids to have some fun.
