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.

This is a beautiful old bridge that is definitely worth checking out if you're in the area. Very peaceful to stop and sit on the riverbank.

Not that you can spend a great deal of time here, but it's worth a visit and a bit of walk to see it up close.

Worth a visit as it's not often you see structures like this in Australia. The town itself is also beautifully preserved as full of things to do

Wander by the river, walk under the bridge and then climb the centuries old sandstone steps, cross the magnificent bridge and marvel at the craftsmanship that went into erecting the Richmond Bridge. And don't forget to bring plenty of bread with you - the ducks, native guinea fowl and other assorted birds will all become your best friends - until... More

Take the time to stop at what is ostensibly the entry point to the lovely, well preserved village of Richmond. There is plenty if parking so you can hop out and read the signage about what is reputed to be the oldest bridge in Australia - built with convict labour. There is even a ghost story. Children will love the... More

The oldest bridge in Tasmania was built in 1823 using convict labor and stone from a nearby Quarry. Walk along the shores of the river and you can spot Moscovy ducks in the grass.
