The Richmond Bridge, built in 1823, is the oldest bridge in Australia still in use. Richmond, Tasmania, Australia.
Richmond Bridge is a lasting symbol of Tasmania’s convict heritage. The sandstone arches of Australia’s oldest known large stone arch bridge have spanned Tasmania’s Coal River since its completion in 1825. The foundation stone for the Richmond Bridge was laid on 11th December 1823 and construction continued using convict labour until completion in 1825. In 2005, the bridge was recognised as an outstanding historic place and added to the Australian National Heritage List.
