Backpacking in Australia: Touring Ross, Tasmania

Backpacking in Australia: Touring Ross, Tasmania

Ross is one of Tasmania’s Finest Historic Towns, and what a lovely, tranquil place it was. Streets decked with all the joys of Autumn as my car rode over the “famous” Ross bridge and into this enchanting wee settlement, north of Hobart.

 

Marina and Joseph first mentioned Ross to me. Until they had, I assumed it was just a guy acting in Friends. Or the first name of a Scottish football team, who this year surprisingly got into the Scottish Cup Final.

 

But actually it’s a hidden wee gem. The scenery with Autumn leaves in the heart of the town was incredible and just to say that the photos alone with a few comments can sum up the charm of my morning trip to Ross.
