Retreat from the kids!

Beautiful sight and we'll impressed as it is one of if not the oldest bridge of its type in the country. Built by convicts it amazed me the quality of the finished product!

If you're visiting Richmond, you should see the convict built Richmond Bridge. The oldest bridge in the country. It's a nice walk down along the water's edge. Very picturesque for photos. Even as a local, it's always relaxing to go down to the bridge, especially with kids to run around. Take some bread to feed the ducks.

We took the trip out to Richmond from Hobart to see this beautiful destination. The bridge and the surrounding area is well maintained and welcoming, well worth the trip.

It's an old bridge! It's nice enough for an old bridge but who really cares? Easy to take a nice photo and it is a nice little town as long as your on the way somewhere else.

All of Richmond is worth the visit, only 20 minutes from Hobart it is Tasmania's most important historic town. It has the remains one of the finest examples of convict heritage and many beautiful old buildings. Wonderful places to eat and a lovely place to just wander around.

This convict built bridge is Australia's oldest and is set in a the historic village of Richmond. The bridge is surrounded by a beautiful park and river and is a must when you visit Richmond.

Richmond itself is quite charming, but the bridge is worth the journey in itself. Convict built, it is a lovely addition to the landscape. There are nice spots on either side to picnic and feed the ducks. The IGA up the road is well stocked and it's a short walk to the bridge. A good stop between wineries.

Loved seeing the oldest bridge in Australia. A link to convict times! Very picturesque . Look at the Catholic Church through the arch for a great photo.

It is a beautiful old bridge in a nice historic town, worth spending a Saturday or Sunday lunch and a look around.
