Taking any form of transport across the bridge, especially at dawn or dusk, is totally splendid. You'll get a full view and sense of Hobart, the river, and this small city's obvious connection with the environment.

The most common entry point to Hobart from the East Coast or the airport. Also the most commonly used bridge for heading to the East Coast, Richmond, The Coal Valley, Port Arthur or the airport. Visitors should be aware that there are fixed speed cameras covering both directions on the bridge and should keep to the speed limit.

On a Sunday evening in January 1975, a bulk ore ship hit the Tasman Bridge. Within a minute three spans of the bridge collapsed onto the ship causing it to sink. Seven crewmen died and 5 motorists drove off the edge of the bridge into the River.

The bridge is an important and efficient way for traffic to enter in and out of the city from the South east.

Traveled under the Tasman Bridge several times then viewed it from the Cenotaph on the hill overlooking Hobart. Amazing structure. Then I saw the history of the bridge when I visited the Maritime Museum. All worthy to do.

This bridge is critical to traffic flow in Hobart and I can only imagine what kind of chaos it caused when it was struck by a ship many years ago and collapsed. Definitely worth a look and it provides great backdrop to many photos of Hobart.

If you come to Hobart by air, you are more or less bound to come over this bridge, which has an interesting and tragic history.

The Tasman Bridge is an attractive design and offers magnificent outlooks whether crossing east to west or west to east. The bridge is well sign-posted and traffic flows well.
