Richmond, Tasmania

That's 'him' waiting patiently for me whilst I walk over the old bridge to take photos. Certainly no place for caravan parking.

Oldest stone span bridge in Australia built by convicts the foundation stone was laid in 1823, bridge finished 1825. I've shown pictures of the bridge before but never shown these from 2015.

  1. What beautiful pictures, the bridge is spectacular.
    I especially liked the 5th photo, the bridge framing is perfect.
    Hugs and all the best

  2. It is a stunning bridge which some day I hope to see for myself.
    As I have mentioned before I think, I have done a tapestry (to give to himself's mother) of it (or one that is very, very similar.

    1. IT certainly is. Would have not been in such a rush to take photo if there had been parking or was parking for a caravan.

    1. :) So many people come to Tasmania thinking they can drive around it in one day, well you can if you get up really early and come home rather late but you just don't see anything! :)

  9. Wonderful bridge!! And I found the front bumper on your SUV most interesting. Must be some big critters out on the roads.

    1. Just kangaroos, wallabies, camels, goats - that's about it. No camels wandering about in Tasmania though.

  10. That's an impressive and grand old bridge. It would be an agreeable way to spend a few minutes standing on it gazing down at the ducks below.

  14. Wow, what magical photos. I think your photos of the bridge are better than actually being there. Thanks so much as I don't know when we'll be able to get there to see that beautiful bridge again.

    1. You are kind Rosie. Hopefully you can visit Tasmania again - cost of the Ferry is expensive and the Caravan park owner here in Tasmania are cross because people are not coming to visit like they did before - too expensive that Ferry at the moment.

  17. When looking at the bridge it reminds me a bit of the many Roman bridges that we have standing here, similar construction and many years of history in their stones.
    Tasmania has to be very beautiful.
    Greetings.
