Tasman Bridge, Hobart
(3.8/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Opened in 1964, Tasman Bridge is one of the world’s earliest box-girder cantilever bridges, most famous for the fact that it collapsed one night in 1975. The rebuilt bridge is now the main road link between Hobart's eastern and western shores. Walk over the bridge for a sensational view of the blue Derwent River. Using our custom trip planner, Hobart attractions like Tasman Bridge can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
