The centrepiece of the Meander Valley, Deloraine is an arts and cultural centre for the surrounding area. Deloraine is home to many artists, and the town is adorned with various art installations, including statues around the Meander River as well as sculptures up the main street. But the town becomes an artist’s heaven every year in November, when the town plays host to the Tasmanian Craft Fair, swelling the town’s population of around 3000 with up to 30,000 visitors.

Deloraine was identified as exhibiting excellent potential for farming in the 1820s, and agriculture remains the primary industry in and around the region. Evidence of the town’s early history remain, with the town classified by the National Trust for its abundance of historic buildings – featuring excellently preserved Georgian and Victorian architecture.
