Worth seeing given its historical significance in opening the east of Tasmania up. Amazing stone work that is almost two hundred years old and standing up to the test of time. Interesting that they built the bridge with a wide span as well.

This bridge is a few hundred metres walk from the centre of the historic town of Richmond in Tasmania. Built in 1823 by convicts, it is still in use today.

Bridge was nice and surroundings were just beautiful like those canvas. Wish we had more time for Richmond. There are not many nice towns like richmond in our 5 day trip in hobart, so spare half a day there.

The bridge is the draw card. Oldest bridge of its type in Australia, built by convicts... visit the gaol there for more dark history of Tasmania. The town has much to see and being close to Hobart, definitely worth a visit.

A small town with the oldest bridge in Australia - though seriously, nothing historic about it at first glance, or the next few. We tried to buy something from the shops but they were in a hurry to close on us. We felt unwelcomed.

Drove here from Hobart to check this bridge out purely based on the age of the structure. The bridge looked amazing and is in beautiful surroundings. The town of Richmond is quaint, pretty and inviting and the lolly shop is defs worth a visit.

Lovely little town for a nice walk around. Plenty of nice shops and bakeries. Stop and check out the bridge as it's a major tourist attraction.

We went to the lovely little town of Richmond near Hobart Tasmania and were delighted with it. The bridge, built by convicts, could not be more picturesque. We learned that the convicts made the bricks themselves and to "personalize" each one would put their own thumb print into each of the bricks. This quaint town has some wonderful antique shops...

The very popular Richmond Bridge is a nice place to check out. It's couched by park and lawns and readily accessible from both sides. The pleasant Coal River splashes beneath with a good share of water birds dabbling about seeking food from passing tourists. Once you're here continue to check out Richmond town, especially St John's Church on the hill... More
