Truly peaceful place.

The community have put a lot of effort into the park. There are stunning carvings made from the old dead trees which are still rooted in place.

Amazing bridge that was built in 1883 and it look just awesome. Well worth a stop to get up close to see it. There are wooden sculptures on one side of the bridge.

The Red Bridge was completed in 1838 - almost 180 years old. It still look sturdy and is working perfectly! There are wooden sculptures carved from whole trucks!

Beautiful timber sculptures at the Red Bridge. On the opposite side of the road is a line of red bricks stretching all the way through town with the names of a convict on each of them and a couple of details. Campbell Town has some old buildings and lots of coffee shops to choose from.

Built by convicts this is the oldest standing and unaltered bridge in Australia. Impressive surrounds meticulously maintained, it is worth the stop and obligatory photo opportunity.

Hard work to keep prisoners occupied is a good thing, but building a bridge on dry land and then carving out the river channel to use it. Now that is another story that you can only read at the bridge.

We stopped to break the journey between Hobart and Launceston and ended up having a picnic next to the river. Amazing sculptures have to be seen to appreciated and can easily park off the road to get photos of the bridge as well
