Richmond Bridge, Tasmania

Richmond in Tasmania is to me such a pretty town especially in autumn.  It's one of the nicest towns in Australia in my opinion.
Richmond is small with about 990 people. 
The town is about 25km from Hobart in the Coal River region, between the Midlands Highway and Tasman Highway.
The famous landmark is the Richmond Bridge, built in 1823 to 1825 around the time of the town's first settlement.

The bridge is just a stone's throw from the shopping center so it's a nice walk or one can go by car and park near the bridge.

The Header photo is of the Richmond Bridge.

Photos are of the bridge from one side to the other and from top one side to the other.

    Me gusta ese puente y las aguas azules que discurren gajo él.

    1. I somehow think that the green grass is due to it being watered mostly likely with an underground watering system.

  4. The bridge is just gorgeous. It reminds me in a vague sort of way of a Roman aqueduct.

  9. Such a sturdy bridge, they don't build them like that anymore, which is a shame, this is much nicer to look at.

  10. Wow. Packing my bags. Beautiful place.

    Our spring showers are starting. (More like daily floods.) Means the end of a lot of hiking (flooded trails). Sigh. Time to get the kayak out.

  13. I remember seeing the bridge in the 1990s and it is a great bridge. I can't remember where we parked, but we did go to the local shops.

    1. You can park on one side of the bridge, always could or up around the corner.

    1. Thanks.
      The bridges do seems to be arms stretching out saying 'welcome', if we didn't have bridges would harder to get to the other side.
