Tasmania Richmond Bridge Originally named Bigge's Bridge, Richmond Bridge is Australia's oldest bridge still in use. It was built by convicts from sandstone quarried at Butchers Hill and hauled by hand carts to the bridge site.
Convicts were assigned to Redlands to build the estate which still stands today. Its easy to get a sense of what life must have been like at Redlands. As you walk the grounds you discover hop and opium pickers huts.
