Arts & Museums
Opened by Gary and Pat Cleveland in 1976, the Design Centre has come a long way in establishing itself as the number one craft & design center in Tasmania. Not-for-profit in nature, this center has sheltered and supported a number of upcoming artists who work with crafts and woods, by helping them set up exhibitions and sell their creations. The retail shop is set in an impressive building and offers visitors a wide variety of bric-a-brac and crafts to choose from. Check website for more information.
Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery is a grandiose museum that boasts of a contemporary art collection, colonial artworks, zoological collection and other exhibits pertaining to Tasmania's history.
