Don't think the bridge was that good to be honest bit of a disappointment really
It's built a little strangely as if the engineers missed and it has a hump
Don't go if you don't have to

This is quite a spectacular bridge that links the east and west shores of the CBD. As a tourist it gave us great views driving each way into/out of Hobart as well as a stunning view over the Derwent River and to Government House. The ascetics of the design look somewhat austere but at night the gentle upward curve is lit up is and something to see.

Driving across is a little confusing with 5 lanes of traffic but we got used to it in the end. We saw many pedestrians crossing from one side to the other but no bicycles. It’s a modern structure in a city full of colonial architecture and definitely a stand out feature of Hobart.

Enjoy your experience!

An elegant bridge, made more elegant by the sparkling wine we were drinking in the posh pit of the ferry to MONA - elegant without it too :)

When I helped build the bridge in the 1960s it seemed such a colossal and beautiful structure. Now it seems just a bit grandiose and a bit of an eyesore.
