Ross, Tasmania

Nearly forgot the town Ross which is a place I really like especially in Autumn.
Ross is a historic town in the Midlands of Tasmania.  It's by the Macquarie River, and is 78 km south of Launceston and 117 km norther of Hobart.
The town is listed on the Register of the National Estate and is noted for it's historic bridge, original sandstone building and convict history.
The bridge is not the one in my 'header'.

There are two bakery's in Ross both sell wonderful scallop pies and lovely tasty vanilla slices.

Photos from the main street, the highway passes by Ross.  More photos of Ross next post.

  2. Two bakeries. Spoilt for choice. Tasmanian sandstone always has a warm look about it.

    1. Yes two, one would wonder how they both survive in such a small town, but they do probably due to tourist.
      Always lovely sandstone colour.

  3. Me gusta mucho la primera imagen con sus variados colores y tonalidades propias del otoño y el suelo cubierto de hojas caídas.

    Besos.

    1. The composition of the first one, I believe I nailed it as it's a better one of about 5.

    1. Really! Though most places would have scallop pies, they are lovely with a bit of curry. Several towns sell them.

  5. Looks like a town with lots of history. I have never heard of scallop pies. Maybe it's a local specialty.

    1. It must be a Tasmanian thing these scallop pies. Many places sell them in season.
      Much history at Ross and down through the Midlands.

    1. Maybe the locals do the cleaning up, or the council might have some equipment to clean up those leaves..
      Thanks.

  8. I'm reminded of some gold rush era towns in the Sierra Nevada foothills of California.

    1. Are you. Maybe they were built by the Irish, English and Scottish people back then.

  9. For me the best thing about bakeries is the delicious aromas when they are baking anything. All those buildings look so solid and strong.

    1. Lovely smell in most bakeries, fresh bread and other food smells always makes one a bit hungrier..

    1. Thank you Baili.
      When driving through Ross normally it's not half as pretty as when there are autumn leaves.
