- Please to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
The Richmond Bridge is a heritage listed arch bridge located in Richmond, 25 kilometres north of Hobart in Tasmania, Australia. It is the oldest stone span bridge in Australia. In 2005, the bridge was recognised as an outstanding historic place and added to the Australian National Heritage List. The foundation stone for the Richmond Bridge was laid on 11 December 1823 and construction continued using convict labour until completion in 1825.
The bridge is good to photograph from either side down by coal river which can give a good reflection when the conditions are still. Blue hour also good as the bridge is lit up at night from the southern side
Richmond is only 25 kms from Hobart and is a beautiful town with many old buildings from the convict era. Parking is available beside the bridge.
