The village of Ross

In making our way back from Launceston in the north of the Tasmanian Island to Hobart in the south, we cut across the centre of the island. On the way we stopped by at Ross, termed as "Tasmania's finest Heritage Village" and particularly to see the famed Ross Bridge. The village with its Heritage Town Hall, Post office and quaint churches and especially the Ross Bridge was a wonderful place to explore for an hour or so. The most outstanding flowers I saw in this place were the Hollyhocks grown in a row in someone's garden.

Buildings and a few flowers

We stayed at this small hotel in Launceston that was clean and conveniently located.
Old buildings in Launceston, some built in the late 19th century that were well-preserved and now serve modern purposes.
