Shadows of Days Past, Ross TAS
Convict Bridge, Ross, Tasmania, Australia
Product ID : CMDP0047 / Edition Size : 300
Resting on the banks of the Macquarie River in Tasmania’s Midlands, the village of Ross is an elegant shadow of a bygone time and like so much of Tasmania, its origins rest in our nation’s colonial past. The first European to travel through the area, known to its traditional owners as Mackerel, was Charles Grimes in 1807. Flat, fertile and with a reliable supply of water it would be another five years before a garrison of soldiers would be stationed here and in 1821 the town of Ross was proclaimed by Governor Macquarie. A garrison town, the 19th century architecture and elm lined streets give Ross the charm of an old English village as those convicts, soldiers and free settlers who were first stationed and lived here recreated a small slice of their homeland.
