The amazing detailed stonework on the bridge and wondering how it was constructed without modern machinery. The keystones in the arches and the way the bridge has stood the test of time. It is very photogenic.

You can't visit Richmond and not go visit the bridge too. There's plenty of parking and a lovely grassy area to relax, have a picnic or just pause for a photo opportunity. The kids love playing roly poly down the grassy bank. It's fun to just sit and people watch.

The bridge is just a small part of what Richmond has to offer. Oldest bridge in Australia. Worth a look. The town itself has many quaint little shops to visit, such as The Lolly Shop, boutiques selling wood products, jewellery, souvenirs, homewares, antiques etc. Nice little cafes to eat at, a pub, general store. Can spend a couple of hours... More

Just sit and look at the bridge and feel the history. It is not just a bridge but Australian history. Who has used the bridge over the years, what stories could the bridge tell. A must visit.

We just loved our visit to Richmond and it was great to see the historic Richmond Bridge for real rather than in all the postcards and travel books. The bridge is great subject material for historians and photographers alike. There is a lovely parklike feel surrounding it with ducks and geese hovering close to the river. It is a very... More

Beautiful rustic town with so much history. It is a well preserved gem and we got some stunning photos against the back drop of the bridge and the church.
