The Heritage Highway (aka, the Midland Highway) extends from Hobart in the south to Launceston in the north of Tasmania. Explore the old highway which follows the original coaching road between Tasmania's two main cities. Discover its colourful, convict-era history; walk in the footsteps
of bushrangers and the diligent convict stonemasons; the
enterprising wool growers and the tough-as-nails convict road gangs; who have all contributed
to the rich stories of Tasmania's first Main Road.
Detour into the old villages of Oatlands, Ross, Kempton and Campbell Town. At Oatlands, see the working Callington Mill, the sandstone cottages and Casaveen Wool.. In Ross, see the convict-era bridge, wool centre and Female Factory. Visit the grand homes of the wealthy pastoralists at Woolmers or Brickendon. Admire the beautiful architecture. Drive the road through one of Australia's oldest farming landscapes.
