Richmond Bridge 2
Tasmania

On Australia’s National Heritage list since 2005, the Richmond Bridge was constructed from local sandstone between 1823 and 1825 using forced labor by convicts. Its completion facilitated the settlement of the east coast and Tasman Peninsula.

Today the bridge and surrounding area attract about 200,000 visitors annually. As Australia’s oldest large stone arch bridge, it is considered an important part of Tasmania’s convict heritage. The bridge spans the Coal River and is presently used by highway C351, locally called Wellington Street.

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. Take a whirl around the panoramas to see for yourself! Text by Steve Smith.
