Nov 22, 2017 - Tasmania Trip 2017

Today Noel and I drove to Hobart, WHY? Well, Noel checked to see how we could vote on the website, and it seemed we could phone vote. So the first day it was available we all rang to vote, Noel,David and Ann successfully voted. When I rang the lady said phone voting was not for people travelling . So I didn’t get to vote. SO!! Off we went to Hobart, and I voted, l’m sure mine vote is the better one. The website has since been changed, and they don’t accept travelling public for phone voting. Enjoyed some time at the shopping centre, then...

Nov 21, 2017 - Tasmania Trip 2017

Monday was a quiet day, mostly housekeeping, shopping, and a hair trim for Noel. Tuesday we moved on to Ross, a tiny town with many restored brick and stone buildings. Also beautiful old Churches, here and along the way, afraid many are no longer used as churches. On the way to Ross we called into Campbell Town, found another beautiful old bridge, very photogenic, and more carvings which were beautifully done. Love Dawn

Tasmania Trip 2017

Jan 27, 2014 - Ross

19/01 Next stop was Ross, a very Georgian town with 2 bakeries. Staying at the caravan park there right on the river, $24 for an unpowered site but in the best part of the park. Next day took a day trip out to the east coast to St Marys and St Helens over to St Columbia Falls and then up to the Bay of Fires. St Helens very touristy with boutique shops on the riverfront, luxury boats on the waterfront but very pretty. On the way to St Columbia falls we stopped in at the Pyengana cheese factory and stocked up on cheeses again, off to the...

Feb 17, 2007 - Rousing Ross

Wow is it sweltering :P Packed up our stuff and left the Beach House at Coles Bay. Went to The Friendly Beaches (Freycinet National Park) one last time to stand in the surf. Saw an echidna on our travels through the brush. Had a nice picnic lunch in Campbell Town at a lush green park with a huge log to climb. This was a little welcome oasis in the scorching 'outback' of Tasmania. Arrived in Ross at 2 pm to find a tent site at the Ross Caravan Park. A rodeo was in town for today only. Anticipating some rowdiness. Lots of cowboy boots and...

Dec 26, 2005 - Tas: Through the midlands to Ross

Driving through the midlands of Tasmania you could be forgiven for thinking you're driving through the English countryside. It's full of hedges and rolling green fields and Georgian looking farmhouses - all very charming. This part of Tassie is marketed as the Heritage Trail and covers the towns that played a part in the convict and agricultural growth of the island. We make it to Ross at dusk and decide to stop for the night. Ross is about 120km from Launceston and very pretty - all stone buildings and beautiful big trees. It used to be a...
