So good to see this wonderful bridge, purported to be our oldest one! Fantastic brickwork in the arches. It's a lovely structure and gives you a great feeling as you view it in such a beautifully scenic setting. The ducks and the river add to the experience. In fact, the town itself is also worth-while visiting, with its heritage houses... More

We arrived there about 5pm on Nov 11. The surrounding is quiet, the ducks are sleeping. The sun is not so strong and the light is good to make the bridge picture like an oil painting. The view is amazing.

Richmond was a highlight of our trip around Tasmania and this beautiful old stone bridge has certainly stood the test of time - standing proudly in Richmond. Swans and ducks in the river, children feeding the birdlife and other very historical buildings and landmark a short walk from the town centre.

We viewed it in the evening and morning. I think the best photos will be achieved in the morning, as the light will be on the bridge. Limited parking, so in peak holiday season you may want to consider walking to it. You can easily access the church from the car park at the bridge.

Australia's oldest bridge in richmond! Sit by the chairs (instead of the grass patch as there may be some "dirt") enjoy the bridge shinning in the sun in glory! Great place for photos and feed the ducks.

Bridge built by convicts in 1800s which is still a beauty now. Really glad that we managed to see this bridge while on the way to Richmond.

On the way to Port Arthur from Hobart, we stopped at this small town Richmond, some 25 km north east of Hobart. Have a very nice stroll along this town we found this oldest stone arch bridge still in use in Australia. Beautiful arch bridge made from sandstone by convict labour in 1825, 190 years ago. It crosses Coal River,... More

Lovely historic spot & great photo opportunities. Good area for a picnic also. Worth the drive out from Hobart to spend a day meandering around Richmond
