Yarns Artwork in Silk is a unique 3D textile art installation consisting of 4 very large handworked silk panels decipting local events and vistas in a seasonal diaroma. Viewed in an auditorium accompanied by an audio visual narration. Crafted by over 300 artists using silk dying & painting, hand & machine embroidery, quilting, patchwork and many more techniques.
We arrived in time for a presentation on these extraordinary artworks. The detail in each of them is amazing. The incredible number of hours so many people contributed to these make them a brilliant community project to be appreciated by all who see them. The pioneer village, museum and fabulous gift shop all contribute to make this well worth adding to your itinerary.

I did the Liffey falls track walk (at the fork on the gravel road take the left) which is signposted to be 3hrs return, however at a faster pace it only took me 1.5hrs. The walk is well maintained with slight inclines and declines, nothing too demanding. The falls are beautiful and definitely worth a visit. The drive in is on windy gravel roads which was a little scary, however in dry weather it should be fine.

The Great Western Tiers Visitor Centre can assist you with accommodation & tour bookings, Parks Passes, maps, fishing licences and itinerary planning. Open 7 days a week from 9am to 5pm (winter hours may vary). We also house the Yarns Artwork in Silk and Deloraine Folk Museum attractions. Gateway to Cradle country - call in today for great service and info about all the special places to visit in the Great Western Tiers, the heart of Tasmania.
Ducked into this Information Centre twice during our stay in Deloraine. On both occasions found helpful friendly volunteer staff. The centre also has some wonderful displays; Yarns exhibit, statute of the mighty horse Maluca, a back verandah with great views of the Quamby Bluff and the western tiers. There is also a souvenir shop and a good selection of postcards. One of the better Visitor/Information centres.

41 Degrees South Salmon and Ginseng Farm is located in the North of Tasmania. A short drive from Launceston along the Great Western Tiers Touring route takes there. The salmon farm is set up with sustainable practices in mind. The salmon are grown in fresh water tanks under Eco certified conditions. A man made and natural wetland is used as a bio filter for the fish waste, creating a beautiful habit for the native flora and fauna. Free tastings of the salmon and ginseng products are available in store where there is a small gift shop and cafe for light lunches and refreshments. Self guided tours around the farm are on offer 7 days a week.
41 Degrees South offers an interesting stop off on your way to Cradle Mountain. You can buy salmon and ginseng products as well as feed the fish and tour the farm. A family owned business that has opened its doors for all to see and...MoreThank you very much fro your review!

The Folk Museum was opened as the Family & Commercial Inn in 1863. Today it reflects the life of the country publican and his family. Also housed in extensive Gardens is the Pioneer Walk, where you can view reproduction and reclaimed heritage buildings showcasing the lives, tools and farming equipment of early settlers.
This museum is better than the average small town museum. It is located as part of the town's tourist information building. There are a number of recreated early settler buildings outside and inside an old inn has been refurbished. The museum entry includes entry to the Yarns an audio visual display of the towns tapestries which tell the story of Deloraine through the seasons.

We visited the DCS late afternoon on a week day. This contemporary space is home to artists and crafts people creating within their own open plan studios/booths. There is something for everyone here from paintings, sculptures, jewellery, woodcraft and weaving. DCS is open 7 days a week but not sure what times and we couldn't find that info on their website. Deloraine offers many shops and spaces showcasing local artisians so if that's your interest it's well worth a visit. We also loved the fun little sculptures dotted around the main streets.

Deloraine has reinvented itself from an agricultural town to a centre for arts and crafts, and Elemental Artspace is a prime example of what can be accomplished. It's not dealing with a specific art niche, but rather is a constantly changing collection of arts and crafts. The only constant is a quilting section offering materials for sale and courses in various aspects.
But the majority of the space (a "retail" floor and two gallery levels) is a collection of creations from local artists. And, when we were there, it is a very eclectic collection. There were animals made from laser-cut metals, chopping blocks made from recycled wood from a demolished primary school, natural wood walking sticks, and an "unplayable" musical instrument like a cross between a harp and a denuded piano!
This place is definitely worth a visit, if for no other reason to see what new items have turned up.
