There is almost something for all tastes here. The Tasmanian Craft Fair has developed to be one of the largest in Australia and there are several venues to cover. Organisers have organised a free bus between all venues so if you are there for the whole day, you can park your car once and take advantage of the shuttle.

Knitting and crochet has been taken outdoors again. I seem to end up in towns that embrace ‘knit graffiti, also known as ‘yarn storming’and ‘yarn bombing’. Note the lovely street scape, already well cared for with trees, sculptures and very clean garbage bin, it was a pleasure to walk around Deloraine.
Buskers come in many shapes and forms. This well dressed gentleman travels around with his camel Llama – correct me if I am wrong but I think they are known as a ‘Camelid’, and if you want to take photo you put a coin in his money-box around his neck. Fair enough we thought.

Now if you are wondering why I did not take photos of the fair, well it was quite difficult with the crowds, so if this kind of fair appeals to you best to go yourself next year.
