Definitely worth visiting! Old nice bridge surrounded by a very beautiful nature and peaceful environment. We were heading to the airport and had not much time to explore the area unfortunately; however, would revisit and stay long enough next time!

I have never seen an old bridge made of brick, made by the convicts like this in my life. It's beautiful - serene - and look like a postcard. Really enjoy the walk to the bridge and up the hill to St. John's church. Just beautiful. Totally love this place and worth the visit. To me, it is something very... More

Take a cut lunch, this isa great place to relax if you have been on theyroad for a while. Park has tables a and plenty of aquatic birds to watch frolics in the stream or one the shoreline. Peaceful and not a far walk from the Richmond Gaol.

Oldest bridge in Australia is a must see. Built in 1823 and still going strong. A tranquil spot by the river to chill out before you hit Richmond Town.

Bridge was a small, old but nice to view. Those interested in architecture would enjoy it. I enjoyed the town more. Nice shops. Touristy stuff of course, but some antiques and I do recommend the woodmade shop. I forget the name. But handmade wooden things, beautifully made. Huon pine and others. From chopsticks, candle holders, clocks and a beautifully made... More

The oldest bridge in Australia, built in 1823, is worth a trip to Richmond. Take a basket and have a picnic, then take a pleasant walk around the town.
