Cute bridge still standing after 200 years. Just imagine some poor convict thinking....."I better use a bigger rock so that those big semis can go over this in 150 years. What made them think to make the bridge extra wide?

Visited here on a crisp cool morning and it was just lovely. The Richmond Bridge is such an iconic attraction...that bridge is recognised all over Australia. We had a lovely walk down by the river and took some beautiful photos. Totally worth a visit and the whole little town is full of history and beautiful buildings.

Richmond would have to be the most beautiful country town in Tasmania and possibly Australia. The 200 year old Richmond Bridge is the major feature of this pretty town and it is a structural marvel as well as being scenically located. Everything about this town is a wonderful mixture of old colonial Australia and the English and Irish villages of... More

Every time we visit Richmond we stop at Richmond bridge to take few more photos,do not get tired of looking at this beautiful piece of history. Taking photos from the grass area is very popular and sometimes you have to wait your turn but it worth it and all part of the game.

The Richmond Bridge is a must-see, to appreciate the stonemason skills of nearly 200 years ago - without the aid of modern engineering skills and technology, this bridge was built to be of architectural beauty, and the strength of the construction has withstood the traffic that was never envisaged when it was built

Worth a look when in Richmond - lovely picnic area on the river bank and you get to see the oldest bridge in Australia!

First - visit Richmond if you are visiting Hobart or surrounds - it is very close by and a beautiful historic town (where the Gaol is the #1 attraction in my opinion). The bridge is well worth a look and a walk over and under - given its age. It adds to the beauty of the small town.

Very photogenic bridge set in a very pleasant park, a nice spot for a picnic on a good day. I wouldn't make it the sole purpose of the visit. Could do with some more information on its construction.

We walked from our hotel around the residential area to the riverbank where there is a well made pathway/trail, which we took for a leisurely stroll toward the bridge. It was a peaceful walk, rich in fall colors, with ducks and geese foraging and prattling along the way. The bridge is impressive as we approach, but, it gives no clue... More

When visiting Richmond you need to eye this most beautiful sandstone bridge that is used. The lovely green grass plays home to the cute ducks in the water below. Take a picnic or sit and have a coffee while you enjoy this beautiful oldest bridge in Australia
