Built in two complementary sections forty years apart (1863 and 1903), Kings Bridge in Launceston, Tasmania, is a very elegant and gracefully arched, open girder steel bridge which carries Bridge Road/Trevallyn Road across the Tamar River. Built to carry main road traffic north from Launceston to the town on the coasts of Bass Strait, the bridge is now protected from heavy West Tamar traffic by the newer adjoining Paterson Bridge, which was brought into service in the 1960s. Kings Bridge is now reserved for local traffic only.
Part of the bridge’s appeal is that it is the perfect terminating element to the renowned Cataract Gorge which joins the South Esk River (via Trevallyn Dam) to the Tamar River.

    A fantastic shot a a wonderful structure over a very beautiful spot on the river, Tony!!! Brings back fond memories of staying at the Pennyroyal M Inn, in the 80’s, beside it!

  • Thanks Phil. Yes it is a lovely spot and the Pennyroyal is still right there although showing its age just a little.

    A cracking capture Tony. It’s amazing how many of your place and river names come from the UK.Especially the West Country….Launceston,Tamar,Esk (we have two Esks up North)

  • Thanks Jamie. Much of Australia was seltled by British stock who named the places after those they came from, especially Tasmania whose temperate climate reminded them more of home.
