Bridge Tourist Spot
The country's oldest bridge still in use, Richmond Bridge remains a testament to Tasmania's forced migration heritage. The sandstone arched structure was built by convicts between 1823 and 1825. An unsolved murder marked the early bridge's history, when a notorious prison guard fell asleep drunk on the bridge and was pushed off its edge by presumably one or more of the prisoners. Pack some snacks for a picnic on the grassy riverbank underneath this national heritage site.

  • Richmond is not a big city. But there are some sites which are worth to visit like Richmond Bridge and St. John Church. It will also be nice to walk around the river and feed the ducks there.  more »
