Richmond Bridge 1
Tasmania

The Richmond bridge is the oldest bridge still in use in Australia. It spans the Coal River and is located 11.6 miles NNE (heading 28.45 degrees) from Hobart, Tasmania. It is built of locally quarried sandstone and now supports Highway C351, also known as the "Convict Trail".  The bridge was completed after 17 months of construction in 1825 using convict labor and in 2005, the site was added to the Australian National Heritage List.

More About Australia

There are no kangaroos in Austria. We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in! Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth. The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party. This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality. The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes.
