It's one of the oldest working bridge of Australia. There is a nice park and lots of ducks. Good place to go via, when going to port arthur from Hobart. Nice place to take photographs. Richmond is a nice old town. We loved driving around the town and looking at beautiful small buildings and architecture there

Iconic building with lots of history associated with it. Good to see it in relation to other buildings eg the Gaol. Suspect it gets very busy with visitors but we were lucky. Its also difficult to get good pictures with out tourist buses in the background.

Beautiful location for a picnic. Take some bread for the ducks! Worth the drive over and taking the time to have a wander around.

A great place to start your visit to Richmond. A territorial goose is in residence. Be sure and visit the nearby Catholic Church

The bridge completed exceeded my expectations - it was so beautiful and picturesque. We were lucky and had a clear and sunny day for our visit. This only added to its charm. I would recommend packing a picnic and really enjoying the views. Also, make sure you bring your camera for all the amazing shots!

This is the oldest bridge in Australia built by convicts in 1823. The atmosphere is lovely and you can spend hours by the river enjoying the serenity. Grab a coffee and sit by and watch the clouds go by. Its great for kids to watch the ducks and I also saw some play in the shallow water. There is parking... More

Van Dieman’s Land was discovered in 1642 by Abel Tasman, but it wasn’t until 1803 that it was settled as a British colony. The first settlers, arriving by ship, on 12 September 1803 were 48 convicts transported from Britain, under the command of 23-year old Lieutenant John Bowen of the Royal Navy. The 1803 penal colony settlement at Risdon Cove... More
