A heritage-listed site in the downtown area, Old Umbrella Shop is one of the last surviving early 20th-century stores in all of Tasmania. Once operated by three generations of the Shott family, this store now features permanent historical displays and sells umbrella souvenirs, most of which are made on the premises. At this location you can also stop by a convenient visitor center, providing tourists with information about numerous other attractions in and around the city. After your visit to this historic shop, enjoy a cup of coffee at a nearby outdoor café, or take a leisurely stroll through one of the area’s verdant public parks.

  • Very friendly staff, lovely collection of gifts, umbrellas and information. Tiny but fun and items reasonably priced. 
  • We went here because we had a map of what to see and it was on it otherwise we would'nt. Nice to see some of the older shops still up and running 
  • Very helpful volunteer staff, take time to look at selection of vintage umbrellas. Always something new. Easy access to shop.
