There's something about shopping that just makes you feel good. Whether it's a new dress, hat, necklace or even accessory for the home, but best yet a memory from your holiday – a new purchase can really give you a boost.
Luckily, shops are readily accessible, with the main shopping areas open from 09:00 until 17:00 or later in some cases, every day of the week. Of course you can purchase a new outfit or some flash accessories, but often it's the more special, locally-made items that appeal to visitors, with their unique traits and points of difference.
Tasmania is home to all that you think you may want and more, with specialty goods such as wooden crafts, wilderness photography and wool products particularly enticing as a memento.
Tasmanian wool has a reputation for being some of the finest in the world, so there's no shortage of products for you to invest in. Not that they’re all investments! Some are bargains too good to resist.
You'll also come across quality furniture, paintings, clothing, jewellery and artifacts amongst galleries, markets and arts and crafts shops.
Foodies will be happy to know that Tasmania also has a top reputation for its food and wine. The state is blessed with clean waters and rich soils, so you'll find an abundance of tasty and flavoursome oysters, scallops, cheese, crayfish and more.
Not only this, but Tasmania is home to its fair share of juicy fruits. Berries, apples, and other varieties are the perfect snack, to be complemented perhaps by Tasmanian chocolates, and leatherwood honey.
Then there are the arts and crafts of the state. A number of locals are talented artists, producing locally-made and hand-crafted souvenirs that will make your memories of your time in Tasmania all the more precious.
