Visit Makers Workshop, located on the city’s waterfront, to purchase quality arts and crafts made by local artists. Dedicated to the preservation of regional history, culture, and art, this tourist attraction is situated inside an award-winning modern building that is part museum, part cultural center. You can stop by the site’s visitor center, staffed by volunteers ready to help you find your way around the city and beyond. The workshop’s gallery features regular exhibitions by Tasmania’s popular artists, and the gift shop sells a wide range of souvenirs. As you observe the artists at work, grab a coffee and a plate of fresh local fruit, or enjoy a hearty meal at the workshop’s popular café.
