Well, I've caught up with my blog-reading

Here's a taste of Tasmania

Richmond Bridge - Oldest bridge still taking traffic in Australia.

"Richmond Bridge is a lasting symbol of Tasmania's convict heritage. The sandstone arches of Australia's oldest known large stone arch bridge have spanned Tasmania's Coal River since its completion in 1825. Built by convict labour, the Richmond Bridge reminds us of the forced migration that contributed to the development of Australian society. Today visitors flock to see the popular attraction, which survives with few significant changes."
