    Well worth taking time to admire
    It was a joy to see Richmond bridge. Given it was constructed in the 1820’s it looked amazing, glowing in the afternoon sun. Nice grassed area to sit and admire it. Also noted they were improving the parkland on the town side.

    Completed in 1825 using convict labour, this is the oldest stone span bridge in Australia.
    Nearly 200 years old and still very much in use. Construction commenced in 1823 and the bridge was completed in 1825. The bridge is constructed of sandstone, which was quarried at Butchers Hill, and transported approximately four kilometres to the bridge site by convicts using hand carts. The bridge consists of four main arches which span the Coal River. There is a lovely park and walkway along the side of the Coal River which affords one a great view of the bridge as well as an excellent photo opportunity.

    History Building & Structure
    It was recorded as Australia oldest bridge, it is amazing it is still stood strong there after so many decades including wars. It is just located besides Richmond town, an easy walk & stroll if you have time. We did it as last stop before take-off at Hobart airport. Good choice if you have additional 1-2 hours time as Richmond is only about 15-20 min from airport.

    Stunningly beautiful bridge in the heart of Richmond
    Stunningly beautiful bridge in the heart of Richmond. Best to park on the eastern side of the road near the bridge in which you can easily walk to the St Johns Church just down the road. The bridge itself is regarded as one of the finest of its kind and is hugely popular. You can get to all sides of the bridge for great photos.

If you are in this area of Tasmania you have to stop at the Oldest Bridge in Australia. It is a lovely bridge to photograph.

Thirty five years ago I took a magnificent photo, but today there are houses surrounding it and cars travelling over it all the time. Still a magnificent structure built in 19th Century.

This was similar to RossBridge, but it’s a bit older and more roughly constructed. Lots of people were taking pictures of it at 10 on a winter Monday morning.

Beautiful spot to take a break, relax, admire the very picturesque bridge and take in the history! Follow this with a walk down the main street and afternoon tea for a perfect afternoon.

A beautifully constructed example of early nineteenth century construction, built by convicts. Now 200 years old and still fit for purpose.
