The beautiful and historic Ross Bridge crosses the Macquarie River and can be found on the very edge of the town of Ross in central Tasmania, Australia. It is the third oldest bridge still in use in Australia. Construction of the sandstone bridge began in 1830 and was completed in July 1836 and was built using convict labour, after being commissioned by Lieutenant-Governor George Arthur and designed by architect John Lee Archer. The convict work team included two stonemasons, James Colbeck who was appointed supervisor of construction and Daniel Herbert, who was responsible for the intricate carvings along both sides of the bridge. The bridge was registered on the Register of the National Estate in 1978.
