Richmond Bridge, Tasmania

The Richmond Bridge, built in 1823, is the oldest bridge in Australia still in use. It's also made from sandstone hauled to the site by convicts using hand-carts. The foundation stone was laid on 11 December 1823 and took three years to complete.

In 2005, the bridge was recognised as an outstanding historic place and added to the Australian National Heritage List.
