Every November the town swells to almost 30,000 people (there are only 2000 residents), for Australia's biggest working crafts fair. Over four days more than 200 exhibitors allow you to see firsthand many of the final products being made. Take a workshop and learn candlewicking, or watch experts craft kaleidoscopes and silkscreen paintings right before your eyes. Visitors that can't make it for the fair can still check out many displays at the galleries in town.
The 41 Degrees South Salmon Farm and neighbouring Ginseng Farm are both successful ecotourism businesses. Take a relaxing walk through both wetlands and woodlands. Learn about ginseng, explore the fish farm and keep a sharp eye open for platypus near the creeks on the nature trail. Mole Creek National Park is a great afternoon, head in and discover Liffey Falls or watch Tasmanian Devils being fed at Trowunna Wildlife Park. Christmas Hills Raspberry Farm is notorious for its delicious desserts, and stop by The Honey Farm for a taste of Tasmania's unique leatherwood honey.
