Ross Bridge. Tasmania

The beautiful bridge at Ross is an historic bridge in Tasmania, completed in July 1836.  It crosses the Macquarie River.  The sandstone bridge was constructed by convict labour, and is the third oldest bridge still in use in Australia.



The southern side, unfortunately the sun was in the way with the photo below.


The photos below were taken in 2015 so this year we didn't stop to take anymore.
These were taken from the northern side of the bridge and have been posted before in 2015.
There is a vast difference in the colour due to the type of day it was.

    1. Gorgeous bridge. Years ago before the highway was constructed, before the towns were bypassed there was a viaduct going north only, every time it rained heaps there was a flood, so north and south bound traffic used the viaduct waiting in turn to go on it.
