The Old Bus Depot is famous for its themed and weekly markets which it has hosted since it was founded by local entrepreneurs in 1994. Visitors to the area are advised to book hotels in Canberra in plenty of time in order to secure accommodation during this busy period in Canberra's retail calendar.

Canberra is at the very heart of a vast wool producing region, and enthusiasts and businesses from as far as New South Wales, Victoria, and South Australia make the journey to attend this event.

Artisans, craftspeople, and businesses both large and small will represent wool in all its forms and uses. From dyes and yarns to hats, clothing, textiles, home-crafts, felting, accessories, tools and gadgets, it can all be found under one roof at this increasingly popular annual event.

The Old Bus Depot is the holder of two awards: the Australian Tourism Awards Hall of Fame, and the Tourism Retailing 2002-2005 Australian Tourism Awards.

Guests staying in hotels in Canberra can enjoy staying in Australia's capital, choosing a range of accommodation from Youth Hostels to 5-star luxury facilities.
