“Beautiful, historical town of Richmond”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Richmond offers great Australian history in this colonial, rustic quaint town! Definitely stop off at the ice-cream shop for a selection of yummy flavours and other sweets, as well as follow the walking tour to see all the important historical monuments and sights; there are also many handicraft shops and wonderful views.

“Oldest Bridge in Australia”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

The small village of Richmond, just 30 minutes drive from Hobart has it all - including Australia's oldest bridge. Its small and well maintained, just like the rest of Richmond. A must see if in the area.

“A reminder of just how young our country is”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

The oldest bridge in Australia. You can drive or walk across it or simply sit on the lush green grass and take a moment to reflect. A perfect place for an old fashioned picnic, there are no tables; byo rug. No playground equipment for the kids; they get to roll down the hill and feed the ducks. You can also walk down the other side of the bridge where less people seem to go - no green grass!

“A surprise!”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

You come across this bridge quite unexpectedly...in fact we had crossed it before we realised where we were. There is a lovely park where you can get a really good look at the bridge & it's great for photos. We were surprised that a bridge that is so old is as wide as it is...we would have thought it would be narrower

“Bridge has seen more, then we could imagine”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

For people who are eager to know history of Tasmania, it is important place to visit.
Richmond village is small and compact little historic place.
Gives you feeling of that times.
This bridge is one strong example how convicts were used to built Tasmania.
This is point where some changes came to the history, this bridge has seen more, then we could imagine.
Haunted during the night time...

It is lovely place to have picnic.
