Richmond Bridge

Richmond is only a 12 minute drive from Orielton. The most well known and photographed landmark in Richmond is the oldest bridge in Australia that’s still in use. Built by convicts in the 1820s, it is made of sandstone and was completed in 1825 when Richmond was the 3rd largest town in what was then called Van Diemen's Land.

It was originally named Bigge’s Bridge after the Royal Commissioner John Thomas Bigge who proposed the erection of the Bridge. Bigge recognised the need to improve transportation of convicts and early settlers from Hobart Town to other regions of Tasmania such as the east coast and as far down the Tasman Peninsula as the Port Arthur penal settlement. Traffic to all these areas passed through Richmond; there was no Midway Point or Sorell causeway at the time.
