Ross Trophies

The Ross family have long connections with Northland, and with the Kauri Museum. Over the years family members have donated significant collections to Museum, and the funds needed to build the Ross Wing, where our gum collection is displayed. 

Bob Ross was a high profile and very successful owner of thoroughbred horses.  Over 200 trophies won by his horses are held by the Museum, including cups from prestigious races around New Zealand, and across Australia.
