Strange feeling walking where convicts once trod. Didn't see the ghost(s). Well maintained, handy picnic grounds

One of the oldest Bridges in Australia. There is no fee, but well worth the trip to come and see. You get to see examples of colonial history and classic archetecture.

We had a great time here, rowing on the river. We went with friends and the kids loved it. Plenty of shops selling arts and crafts. A wonderful wood shop down the end of the main street selling every sort of wood carvings you can imagine. Every piece is different all made in Tasmanian woods. Great places to eat, free... More

The bridge is located in the historic town of Richmond which was 1st settled in 1807 as a military & convict station. It is the oldest bridge in Australia and wasd built for traffic between Hobart Town & Port Arthur. Lovely setting & great photo opportunities.

We were surprised to see that bridge a little outside Richmond. It looks a little bit like in a fiction story! It is a pretty bridge withe 3 arches.

The bridge itself no doubt is a unique piece of Richmond's history. But, the bridge site is rather isolated from the rest of the town, which I think has much to offer as a signature small town. Public toilets are located about 400m away, which is not convenient for a tourist on a cold wet day. Having said that, the... More

What a beautiful bridge! Sturdy and fetching sandstone arches built by convict labour by hand and completed in 1825 in only 17 months. The Coal river flowing under the bridge is just as beautiful, curling along; home to rushes and parkland and birdlife.

Forget the guided tourist tours the local bus is the best option to get there and back costing you $16 round trip. The journey there is half the fun - working to a timetable the bus flys at speed which is exciting in itself as you watch Hobart's changing autumn colours from gold to vibrant red flash by. The journey... More
