The bridge looks good. It's amazing to be in use still after all this time. A closer look at the bridge and you might see the convicts that built this bridge didn't have the skills of other bridges built in the same period, for example the Ross Bridge where some of the convict labourers must have been excellent tradesmen.

If out that way (Richmond, near Hobart) be sure to drive over the Richmond Bridge (30 kph limit) and park on the other side. The photo you take could well be a postcard. If you get tired of the history you could feed the ducks or water hens but watch out for the seagulls!

This is a gorgeous old bridge that has certainly stood the test of time. There were lots of ducks and birds under and around the bridge that would be great for children to feed.

Only 25 minutes from Hobart, very picturesque and peaceful. Great to then walk around town and soak up the history and explore the beautiful shops. Allow a couple of hours. Don't forget to visit the gaol as well.

Beautifully designed and built ...it's worth visiting. Look for the church opposite the bridge. The whole town of Richmond is very quaint.

The oldest bridge in australia. Built by convicts in the 1800's. Still in use today and well looked after. Great photo opportunities.

Amazing example of convict labour being able to produce a remarkable bridge which has stood the test of time being Australia's oldest bridge, stop by and take a photo or two while you relax and sit and have acake and coffee from the nearby bakery

Love this old bridge, but it has become pretty busy with visiting tourists, even on a chilly winters day. If you want to visit and miss the crowds I would suggest early morning or late afternoon, if you want to take photos. Surrounding the bridge is a lovely picturesque park, which is great for a picnic. There are also plenty... More

Five of us visited Richmond and spent time at the bridge as well. The bridge is well maintained, the area looks like the picture. Lots of water birds to see. Lot's of parking and fresh air. Very close to town and highly recommended for visit and a relaxing leg stretch.
