Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

An easy walk past the cemetery on Quality Row. Get pretty steep walking further past the bridge, but there are some incredible views looking back over Kingston. You eventually get to Burnt Pine going that way though along Driver Christian Road (the steep one) turn left onto Collins Head Road, which turns into Queen Elizabeth Road that gets you to Taylor's Road.

Bloody Bridge is easy to walk over and take photos from both ends of the left side (coming from cemetery end) but taking photos of the right side is harder. There's also some weeds clogging up the creek flowing under the bridge so you can't look through the arch or anything.

According to various tours, the convicts building this when finishing it murdered a nasty guard and tried to conceal his body in the bridge. But this was witnessed and reported, and when the guards came to investigate there was blood flowing out of the bridge's stones. Great story, but when you read the info signage near the bridge, it says this is nonsense and gives alternative reasoning for the name.

Like much of Norfolk Island there is much history to be found and the Bloody Bridge is just another story of the past.
Well worth visiting only a short drive along Quality road past the cemetery.
Stop and take a few photos and read the story about its history.
Drive a little further up the hill for some fantastic views over Kingston

There was a rather ghastly story behind this old bridge and how it got its name. We were told about it on the free introductory tour of the island, but returned later as there was a geocache near there that we wanted to get. Lovely old bridge with nearby water hyacinths adding to it's beauty. I believe those plants are classed as a pest but they still look nice.

The story of the bridge is mentioned in one of the island tours. Another interesting yarn about an historical event.

Drive along Quality Row, past the Cemetery to this convict-built bridge. Has a interesting back-story which seems to be a little exaggerated. Well worth a stop to see the bridge and take in the views nearby.

This bridge was built by convicts, and that is reason enough to stop and look at it and wonder about the skill and hard work that went into its construction all those years ago. There is also a story of murderous mayhem about the building of the bridge but that is all it is - a story, and a tall one.

Be careful that you don't miss this spot. It is very interesting and an important part of some of the convict history around the island.

We were disappointed to find that the somewhat gory history of this bridge was actually a tall story and the reputed incident never actually happened.
