GREAT WESTERN TIERS - DELORAINE
Deloraine...........IS TASMANIA'S LARGEST INLAND TOWN......
IS A CLASSIFIED NATIONAL TRUST TOWN.......
AND HOME OF THE TASMANIAN CRAFT FAIR.
The Craft fair, which has 200+ exhibitors, attracts about 30,000 around November each year , so make sure you book you accommodation early if coming to that!
Its a working craft fair, so you can try some "crafty" things.....like....candle wicking,
............or just watch items such as kites, hand blown glass ware, wood carvings, leadlighting etc be done by the craft person.
In town, all year round, there are plenty of art and craft galleries to browse through, plenty of talented people around here!
Deloraine is surrounded by 'English-style' countryside of rolling green hills, hedgerows, and working farms.......the town itself is pretty, being located on the banks of the Meander river, and has a nice park alongside....we ate our lunch here, bought from a good Bakery in town.
Georgian and Victorian buildings, many which have been restored, I find beautiful! and there are plenty to see here
You can either walk or drive, I prefer the walking, think you can see so much more this way.
Yarns Artwork in Silk, a community-based art project which depicts the four seasons through artwork in silk. This is on show at the Great Western Tiers Visitor Centre.
This was one of my favorite Tassie towns!
Make time to stop the car, and go for a walk around if you are only passing through!
