The Midlands Town of Ross
The famous Ross Bridge
A timber bridge was built over the river and subsequently Ross became an important stopover on road journeys between Launceston and Hobart. It developed as a base for the local garrison and became a centre for trade for the surrounding district. Between 1848 and 1854 approximately 12,000 female convicts were held in detention in Ross. The convict site dates back to the 1840s. Usually referred to as the Female Factory, it was one of only a few female convict compounds in Australia. There is one remaining building on the site, the Assistant Superintendent's Quarters, which currently houses a display relating to the site.
Ross Post Office opened on 1 June 1832. In 1836 the stone bridge, known as Ross Bridge, was completed. It is considered the most beautiful stone bridge in Australia. It was designed by John Lee Archer and has extensive sandstone carvings, credited to convict Daniel Herbert.
