Stopped for a drive over the bridge, a quick rest stop and photo opportunity of this quirky bridge just outside of Swansea Tasmania.

As history buffs we spent some time at the bridge and I spent time researching the local convict history. Amazing construction and historical links to the convict era.
If you're going to coles bay, it's worth a short stop since it's right beside the road. It'll only take 5 minutes. The bridge is fairly tiny. It has a board with information about the bridge history.
We probably would have missed this if our Tassie friends hadn't mentioned it as a place of interest. The sides of the bridge have stone spikes like the walls of some places that have broken glass on top to prevent intruders. Intriguing place and story.
This convict built bridge was once part of the main road, now bypassed by the modern highway. An interesting relic and yet another reminder of Tasmanian convict history. A quick place to stop and stretch you legs.
