For me every time I visit Hobart I need to go to Richmond just to admire the bridge. It is a truly exceptional bridge reminiscent of the classic bridges in England villages.

This bridge is the number one attraction in Richmond. That tells you a lot. And it leaves me perplexed when I think of all the great bridges in the world. But it is old and it was built by convicts. The town is a quaint little village of shops and restaurants with lots of tourists - Tasmanian tourist trap. But... More

Nice little wooden bridge with a good view of the river and the countryside. Would recommend people take some photos from the bridge.

Richmond was one of our favourite day trips from Hobart. It was easy to get too, the bridge was very photogenic and the town was full of lovely gift and craft shops and cafes and historic buildings and pretty gardens. There was a wonderful jewellery shop where the jeweller was happy to adjust the length of a necklace we bought... More

I always take visitors from overseas to Richmond. It is conveniently close to Hobart, and has everything a tourist needs close at hand. The Richmond Bridge is a must see, and it is close to the Richmond Gaol, craft and souvenir shops, woodcraft store, the Richmond Maze, and the Old Hobart Town model. There are also some lovely old churches... More

The Bridge is very pretty and unfortunately the grass area was roped off, yes it probably was for a very good reason, but with inclement weather not much of an opportunity for taking photographs. Being school holidays it was a very busy area.

Close to Hobart, Richmond is well worth the visit. Plenty to see & do, especially the Richmond Bridge, the oldest in Australia. The setting is lovely with the grassed surrounds and the paddle boats and birds on the water. Give yourself time to wander around the town to look at the historic buildings and gardens.

The bridge is absolutely beautiful and it feels like you are stepping back in time to cross it. The geese and ducks in the water add to the sense of history.

Very scenic and a lovely place. Take the time to purchase something to feed the ducks with from the general store.
