The Richmond Bridge is a nice little stopover if you are strolling through the quaint little town of Richmond. It is also a perfect photo opportunity. The bridge has an amazing history and is an important part of the history of Australia's penal history. There is also a nice grass area for children to play or to have a picnic.... More

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant, just so England when you can't get there. So full of mystery and beauty and the place is just another world. I love it so much. Spend a day on the banks, walk Richmond township, enjoy your time there, it's precious.

It doesn't seem to matter what time of day you visit, the bridge is a photographic opportunity. The water birds clamour for attention if they think you have food to share.

When I was in Australia last time, April 2011!!! We went to Richmond for the day and to Port Arthur the "famous" prison....but that review is on Richmond. The small township is easy to find and it's only 30 minutes from Hobart. Once you cross the bridge, head east to Richmond. The countryside looks lile some European countryside and it's... More

The very best of a lovely town. A highly photogenic bridge from any angle, full of history. The riverside park near the bridge are lovely and would be a great place for a picnic.

Very Historic Bridge. Very beautiful area, tho I thought there could be a bit more information to read on it. Heaps of parking, some table and chairs for a picnic. Great spot

I did the Experience Tasmania Day Tour to Richmond, this was an afternoon tour. Learning about the history of the area was good by the driver. I had 2 hours in Richmond, which I found too long. There are quiet a few shops to explore, see some old churches, the goal, once you. Have done those, and seen the bridge,... More

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.
