Ross

This little convict-built village on the banks of the Macquarie River was settled in 1812. The convicts who carved the beautiful sandstone bridge were given a free pardon for their work. See if you can find the carving reputed to show the drunken face of Governor George Arthur. In the adjacent Tasmanian Wool Centre you can see and touch different types of wool, including the superfine merino this region is famous for.
