Ross Bridge, Tasmania

Description

 “Ross Bridge, Tasmania”

Ross bridge is a lovely, quaint old historic icon crossing the Macquarie River in central Tasmania. Built of sandstone, it was commissioned by Lieutenant-Governor George Arthur. It is the third oldest bridge still in use in Australia having been completed in 1836. Convict labour was used to construct the bridge which was built with the Pythagorean theory of symmetry. It has many sandstone carvings, credited to convict Daniel Herbert.

The bridge was placed on the “Register of the National Estate” in 1978.
