Very impressive, especially the carvings. Hard to imagine it was built so long ago for horse drawn vehicles and manages with today's trucks. While this is a better piece of work, I preferred the Richmond bridge - less perfect.

A must see, this beautiful bridge of history built in 1836. Please find a tour guide to explain all about the building of this work of art. There is so much that I could not possibly tell you as it would take too long. The bridge is in sandstone and in excellent condition as you can see. It was build... More

The apparant lesser cousin to the Richmond Bridge is well worth stopping at. Again you drive over a nearly 200 year old convict built bridge and enter a real gem of a town.

This is history - the bridge is in excellent condition and the celtic carvings on it are both most unusual and intriguing. The river it crosses is lovely.

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. (Unlike in Adelaide where a bridge is crumbling 6 years after construction!) The village has a number of other historical sites so be sure... More

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.
