Built in 1836 the bridge at Ross still carries regular traffic and shows no sign of wear and tear. Like the Romans those convicts knew how to put things together to stand the test of time.

The bridge is still in use after nearly 200 years and is a grand piece of architecture dating back to the state's convict era. It has to be viewed from all sides and of course do cross it.

While so much is old in Tasmmania, (by Australian standards that is), if you are heading through the middle from Hobart to Launceston, this is worth a look. Convict built with the stonemasons granted freedom after its completion. Nice little picnic spot on the north side (no camping). Caravan park right nearby too that is simple but nice

Went to Ross to see the bridge and while I was there I had a look around the town and took some picture of the old sand stone places and two red phone boxes they remind me of the one from Dr who, all I can say it's a beautiful place and I will recommend a visit to Ross

Built by two convicts who got their freedom on completion. Not only is it a very functional bridge but it is also beautiful. The low sweeping curve of the arches with are adorned with carvings is a pleasure to the eyes.

The convict bridge is a must see along with the Female Factory, the Tasmanian Wool Centre and the old church at the top of the hill which is open and free to walk around inside. There is an old Post Office still in operation.

A beautiful historic bridge and nice to be able to get up close to see the details. Unfortunately the lighting was not working so we were unable to see the night view.
