It's a very nice looking old bridge, with a parking lot next to it so you can inspect it. Having spent a lot of time in Europe I didn't find this bridge particularly impressive, but I understand the local pride. May as well see if it you're in town, or if you have an interest in Historical Bridges of Australia.

When you think this beautiful bridge was built to take horse and carts and now it still supports modern cars and trucks, amazing bit of engineering. Not only is it strong but it is also beautiful to look at.

Richmond is a great place to visit. This is one of the highlights. Oldest convict built bridge in Australia.

It's a bridge. A very pretty & quite old bridge, I must say. Bring some bread to feed the ducks or chips to feed the gulls I guess, but a smart phone to read the heritage of the bridge would be handy

Still standing, great to take a quick look. We read the information on the historic site. You should leave the car and walk around.

Richmond Bridge is the oldest bridge in the Southern Hemisphere, made by convicts using sandstone, great for picnics in the spring/ summer months and plenty of ducks to feed

If you are travelling through Richmond it is worth a look. Very picturesque. Trip advisor wants me to write more words so I'll just say while you are at the bridge you may as well walk up the hill to check out the church & cemetery.

Picturesque bridge in a beautiful location. The gardens and the historic houses in Richmond are worth a stop. Some may find this too touristy but I found the village charming and had wished we had longer here to explore.
