This otherwise innocuous looking bridge is somewhat of an attraction due to its construction by convicts and the fact that it has stayed standing for so long. However in and of itself it is hardly imposing, the setting isn't inspiring and being a main thoroughfare...More

The Red Bridge was built by convicts. They did a great job as its stands firm all these years! It took 15 months to complete this bridge and it was opened in July 1838. It is attractive! There was a lookout to see it perfectly....More

Great photo opportunity and a chance to learn about the history of the area. Gorgeous area to visit with quaint town and buildings, Convict. Rick trail nearby, with cellar bookshop - best ever bookshop with so much on offer, including coffee, and carved trees nearby.

What’s to say it’s a bridge. Nice park around, but not much more. It’s one of many notable convict structures in this town But it’s still just a bridge.

with the destinction of being the oldest bridge on the National Highway grid, the Red Bridge is an iconic site in its self. Build in 1836 by penal labour, hand made red bricks were used to arch over this river.
