Day Four: Leaving Hobart

Okay. Let’s just say it. The Salamanca Markets are over-rated and we are at a lost how when featured on Masterchef the contestants got disorientated looking for eggs!


Leaving Hobart we travelled along Heritage Highway (with it silhouetted artworks) via Oatlands to Ross.

Weslayan Chapel at Ross.


Ross was one of the early sites selected for a town in Tasmania and was named by Governor Macquarie in 1821. The main tourist attraction is the convict built Ross Bridge which we so did not get a photo of dur to a failing camera battery.

In the centre of Ross the Four Corners have become well known for each having a special character, representing Temptation (Man-O-Ross Hotel); Recreation (Town Hall); Salvation (Church); and Damnation (the gaol) now a residence.

Post Office in Ross.

Watermill on the Meander River at Deloraine. This is where we had to buy a disposable camera at the local newsagency.

View from Cradle Mountain Chateau featuring the Tasmania Waratah. The Chateau had the most delicious desserts. Downside no mobile phone reception.
