    Richmond Bridge

    Wellington Street
    Richmond, TAS 7025
    +61 3 6230 8235 (Tourist Information)

    One of the most prominent and most beautiful features of the historic town of Richmond is the lovely photogenic stone bridge which spans the Coal River. Considered the oldest surviving bridge in Australia, Richmond Bridge was constructed in 1823 using convict labor and is the oldest bridge still in use on the entire continent. Lean over the stone balustrade and listen to the water gurgle beneath the six arches or perhaps catch a glimpse of the ghostly overseer who reportedly walks the bridge on dark evenings. Legend has it that he met his murky end at the hands of the ill-treated convict laborers.
