“Built by Convicts”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

Nice little bridge over the river which was built by convicts and is the oldest stone bridge in Australia (or so we were told by a local man).

“The oldest bridge in Australia”
Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

You must stop here and take it all in. The ducks that have made this place home only accentuates the beauty of the bridge. A photographers delight from all angles.

“Oldest bridge in Australia”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Great for photo buffs. Best to take a photo in spring or Autumn - took some great shots in the golden hour. The bridge is amazing built out of convict slave labour. This is a must do town to see

“Picturesque town”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Richmond is a very picturesque historic town with Australia's oldest bridge, and an interesting collection of 19th century buildings, shops selling crafts, and local produce. We stopped for petrol here and there was driveway service! (We went on to discover this wasn't unusual for Tasmania - but we haven't had driveway service in Melbourne since I was a little boy).
