Bags packed, tickets booked, I was off to Tasmania. But what to see? Looking through some brochures, I was drawn to a town rich in heritage, the colonial town of Richmond, a mere 25kms from Hobart, this was definitely going on the itinerary!
Richmond had plenty of things to see, including a historic prison, but the one thing that really caught my eye was its arched bridge sited near the old gaol and aptly named the Richmond Bridge. Built entirely by the hard labour of convicts, it also happens to be Australia’s oldest bridge and is still being used today.
