    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.

    A dark piece of history presented in pleasant modern surrounds
    Only a 30minute drive from Hobart. Lovely,relaxing village, with plenty to choose from in regard to food options. Walk down to the bridge found us amongst a lovely lawned area spreading down to the river, with ducks abounding. The bridge and surrounds are a perfect photo opportunity. Shops in Main Street are certainly worth spending some time browsing through.

    Quick stop
    It is a pretty gorgeous bridge, took us longer to find a nearby park than to view it. Fun feeding all the ducks & birds around. Looks like there is walks around it.

Wonderful area to sit on the grass or just wonder about. The bridge is just a work of art well looked after, lovely to see so many water birds inhabiting it. Very serene lots of parking.

Everyone who visits Richmond takes a picture of this bridge from the Catholic Church side. I recommend taking the pedestrian walk from the other side of the bridge (the gaol side) and take a picture of the bridge with the church peering from between one of the bridge arches. This also allows one to get a picture of the plaque with the date on it. Also you can admire the waterfowl as we'll.

A must see if you are in Richmond, Tasmania. This heritage listed arch bridge is the oldest stone span bridge in Australia and is still in use. Nice parkland around it, which means there is no shortage of photo opportunities. Buy some lunch and have a picnic next to the river while you admire the work of the convicts who built this impressive structure.

Lovely photo opportunity and must visit whilst in Richmond. We easily spent the day in Richmond, some interesting historic sites, like the bridge and the gaol to visit. Some quaint shops with beautiful pieces, our favorite was the woodwork shop. The bakery for lunch was delicious and some wineries in the afternoon made for a perfect Sunday.

This bridge built by convicts is the oldest Bridge in Tasmania and I believe in Australia.
lovely surrounds and a picturesque setting it gives you a feeling of calmness.
just outside the old town of Richmond where you could spend hours stolling around the shops.
Would have liked to spend more time but we were on a limit.
If visiting Tassie dont go past Richmond.

I remember seeing photos of the Richmond bridge as a young kid, it used to be featured on calendars, biscuit tins etc, in the 60’s.

To finally see it was amazing, and in fact, it looked more beautiful than I had expected. Like so much of Tasmania’s built history, it features sandstone and the colour set against the lush green surrounds was stunning.

Being built when it was, with the limited tools & resources, you truly have to admire both the design and the build execution. Perfect.

The bridge is the oldest existing stone arch bridge in Australia, built by convicts from Richmond Gaol between 1823 - 1825. The Triassic Sandstone was quarried from Butchers Hill. It is supported by six arches, four of which are in the river bed. There are various inscriptions in the stonework, one records the date the first stone was laid. Apparently the craftsmanship was so good that the bridge has survived with minimal maintenance. Nice lawned area adjacent.

The oldest most picturesque bridge in Australia will leave you impressed. Strolling along the Coal River, the bridge comes into view majestically straddling the tranquil waters. Plenty of photo opportunities if you wait for the cars to pass. The limestone blocks and incredible architecture is a beautiful flashback to simpler times.

Yes this beautiful old bridge in Richmond was worth a stop! The oldest bridge in Australia 🇦🇺 We loved the structure and detail. So nice watching the ducks & black swans- they look very much at home! Was nice to walk under the bridge and see it from both sides. I thought it would have been quiet there as far as traffic goes but there was a constant flow of cars crossing the bridge.

We stayed in Richmond for a couple of days, and of course had to have a look at the bridge. This was built in 1823 and looks like it is in very good condition. Attracts a lot of tourists, as it was busy every time we went past the bridge. A nice grassy area to take photos from, or just sit and relax and enjoy the view. Plenty of history and historic buildings to see in Richmond.
