The Amazing Stroll Part 4

The pretty riverside village of Ross was built by convict labour in the early 1800s and has been so well preserved that we were able to enjoy a genuine piece of history.

Ross is arguably the finest nineteenth century village in Australia. Cobble-style paths and grand old elm trees line the main street, while the Ross Bridge, Australia’s third oldest bridge still standing, is possibly the most beautiful of its kind left in the world.

The detail of its 186 carvings by convict stonemasons was deemed of such high quality that it won the men a free pardon.
