Ross is a small historic town in the centre of the Australian state of Tasmania, 120 km north of Hobart and 80 km south of Launceston. Ross was first settled in 1821 as a garrison town for soldiers, as a coaching stop on the Midlands Highway and as a market town. It's especially popular with Japanese travellers, as the bakery was the template for a Japanese comic series ("Kiki's bakery").
A pleasant barbeque and resting place can be found at the bridge. It is an excellent spot for lunch on a sunny day.
Muffins or other sweets from the bakery.
Next to the bakery there is a hotel. Kiki's room is available for rent. If you just want to take a picture, just ask politely at the reception.
