    Durch die Midlands

    December 20, 2016 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    Auf dem Rückweg nach Hobart entschlossen wir uns nicht über die Ostküste weiter zu fahren, da wir ja den unteren Teil aus unserem Besuch auf Maria Island schon kannten und nahmen deshalb den Weg durch die Midlands. Auch hier gab es einige schöne Dinge zu sehen.

    Day 6. Port Arthur - Ross

    January 15, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Woke up in Port Arthur. Hit the Tassie Devil zoo at 10am. Really awesome especially when 3 devils fought over the same piece of wallaby! Great kangaroo feeding too. And quolls!
    Drove 1.5 hours north to Ross. A river town with the 3rd oldest bridge in Australia.
    On the way Jesse and I jumped an electric fence and (illegally) harvested some wheat!
    We are going fishing in the river again tonight. No luck this arvo. Apparently there are platypus here too.
    Having Tassie red wine on the river banks now.

    Ross, situated 120km north of Hobart, is a town full of colonial charm. The town was established in 1812, and was set up to protect Launceston-Hobart travellers from bushrangers. It developed into an important coach-staging post at the center of Tasmania's wool industry. The famous bridge at Ross, was built in 1836, and is the third oldest bridge in Australia. It enabled passage across the Macquarie River.
    Today the town of Ross has plenty of country feel, an array of accommodation and history to keep tourists satisfied.
