I hear people say 'Its a bridge!' I thought the same. It is a bridge but if you look at the bridge in the surrounding area it is spectacular!

Stopped by Richmond Bakery (average...) for a coffee and donut before heading to Port Arthur. Nice little walk down to the bridge. There is ample parking and toilets across the road from the bakery as well as a petrol station, small supermarket and some other shops. I would recommend buying a bag of day old bread (only small change needed)... More

We stopped at Richmond en route from Lake St Claire to Port Arthur. I had read about the bridge and wanted to see if it was as amazing as it sounded. I was not let down! It was absolutely beautiful - the fact it is still standing is astounding. It looks picture perfect and has an amazing atmosphere. The town... More

Richmond is not that far from Hobart and is well worth the short drive. Steeped in early Tasmanian history the town boasts s stone bridge hewn by convicts, a jail that housed them, churches in which they and their keepers prayed, houses from the earliest time of European settlement PLUS modern eateries offering the very best of fresh Tasmanian produce....

Just like the Postcards! Don't forget to see the Goal and the old Church as well. Magnificent looking bridge and you can still drive over it today, what an old beauty!! The weather was glorious nearly the whole time we were in Tasmania

What a quaint little town yet full of history and wonderful knowledgeable people. Took so many photos of the bridge everyone thought I was mad.

Richmond is an amazing place. Quaint houses, lots of nice things to buy and a must do is to stop at the bridge for some photos! Also the ducks love to be fed.

Richmond Bridge has become a main point to visit when meandering this historic village. Perhaps more seagulls than I remember there was still a strong contingent of assorted water birds. Bring your picnic lunch if you dare. Take in the tranquil flowing water and reflect on many original buildings still in use.

spent a lovely afternoon laying on river bank, feeding ducks, sipping local wine and eating lovely local cheese. Felt like I should have been wearing a victorian gown, hat and gloves. Stepped back in time.
