Five days Travel Tasmania (2/5), Richmond-Ross-Winglass Bay

Our second day had a lot of activities to do and places to visit. The main route was through Hobart, Richmond, Ross, Freycinet National park (to see Wineglass Bay) then Launceston. The route was the longest way for drive in the 5-day travel.

1. RICHMOND

Our second day was to firstly visit Richmond, 30mins. from Hobart by car.

 

Richmond Bridge Tasmania Australia

At Richmond you will see the Richmond Bridge which is the oldest bridge in use in Australia.

It was nice to walk around the bridge in the morning because of its fresh air.

 

There is a good cafe/bakery close to the bridge (I remember it took 5-10min. by walk) where we had our breakfast.

THE RICHMOND BAKERY

There are a lot of open spaces outside the bakery in the premises where you can eat breakfast while enjoying the fresh air for relaxation.

A set of a cup of cappuccino and a croissant is my favorite… lovely.

 

2. ROSS

From Richmond we headed to Ross.

Due to likeness to the setting of Miyazaki animation film “Kiki’s delivery service”, many Japanese tourists visit Ross Bakery every year. If you are interested in it please once visit the bakery. To be honest I was not impressed by the likeness.. but as a bakery it is in a good atmosphere and good to stop by when you need to take a rest at Ross.

 

3. FREYCINET NATIONAL PARK

Our main activity today was walking Freycinet National Park and viewing Wineglass Bay. We needed to purchase a ticket as entrance fee which I remember was 24AUD per a car.

In order to get to the lookout giving stunning view of Wineglass Bay, it takes approx. 1.5 hours to go to and from the lookout.

Wineglass Bay Freycinet National Park TasmaniaBecause our time was limited for staying there we went to only one lookout but it would be a good idea to stay one day or two days as there are walking tracks and you can get down to white beach.

 

In the vicinity of it, there is Richardsons Beach where we met….
