It's a bridge, not much really more to say. A really old bridge. Supposedly Australia's oldest bridge. Take a short stroll to St John's Church, Australia's oldest Catholic Church.

A beautiful spot. Its attarction belies its sad and colourful history! A few artists were around sketching. We wanted to visit the cemetary but couldnt see how we got there. Mill House beside the bridge (on the map on teh bridge) is now a private residence.

Walk over it, walk beside it and row under it! Beautiful old bridge full of history and the centrepiece of the quaint town of Richmond. Beautiful walk along the banks of gardens and lush grass.

The historic town of Richmond is just gorgeous. The bridge has parks either side with picnic tables and ducks. You can walk over the bridge and take in the lovely surrounds. Read the information sign about the bridge being built by convict labour, a common way things were built in Tas.

A great looking bridge, reminded me of the Peak District in the UK. Visit this and then go to Richmond Gaol - well worth a look.

A bridge like this is not really worth seeking out! Its nice enough but ultimately is a regular bridge! Richmond is cute, in a very English village way.
