We drove over the bridge twice before stopping and having a proper look. It is very old and beautiful and built by convicts of course. There is a little park underneath the bridge and you can sail down the river in boats made to look like black swans. Such a pretty little town it is well worth a visit.

Richmond is a beautiful town lost in time. Full of interesting thigs to look at and Antique shops galore. The old bridge reminds me of the many stone bridges in Scotland. Well worth stopping and wander around just park the car and stretch the legs. Great little coffee shops too.

Old and impressive. Built so long ago and still functioning as an everyday bridge in Richmond. Part of a enjoyable time experiencing the history the town portraits.

The oldest bridge in Australia that is in a lovely setting. No longer on the main road this adds to its charm.

The bridge is the oldest bridge in Oz built by convicts in 1823, and Richmond is a very pleasant, quaint little village to walk around, take time to wander by the river and stop for a spot of lunch.

It is amazingly beautiful like an oil paintig. The bridge is the oldest in Australia. The town, Richmond, is also old and serene. Choose a morning to wander about!
