They say that it is the first (or the oldest) bridge in Australia, but do not expect too much history down there :) the whole area is a very beautiful, peaceful and relaxing . Just a short drive from the city (30 min) and you can also visit other attractions of Richmond.

The river and bridge are pleasant places to wander around, but they are really just a backdrop to the town itself.

Richmond is a cute little town to visit on the road from Hobart to Port Arthur. We walked down to the bridge after having breakfast. It was a cute spot and worth stretching your legs for to see while in Richmond.

I walked up to the Catholic Church (on the hill) to the cemetery, some of the graves are from the early to mid 1800's so interesting if you like the history side of things. The town itself though I feel has become a bit commercialised (targeting tourists) in my opinion, but if you ignore this aspect it is a nice... More

Australia's oldest known large stone arch bridge is worth dropping by when in Richmond to see and get some lovely photos.

The oldest bridge in Australia has an interesting history and great photo opportunities. Areas to eat and walk around if applicable.

Lovely old bridge, in a gorgeous little town. Definitely picture worthy (as is the beautiful old church on the top of the hill)

I loved the bridge it was so beautiful. It is a lovely little spot to go for a walk. There were also these very cute little black swan boats moored on the town side of the bridge that looked like they could have been fun. Unfortunately they were unnattended when we were there.

Lovely old stone bridge in a scenic park and river setting. Parklands near by with picnic facilities and pretty little town of Richmond full of old world shops of crafts and art to browse. Some interesting historic attractions, and good food and wine to be had in the cosy cafes and restaurants too. A great place to explore on a... More
