The Red Bridge

Not far from Launceston driving south you come to a small town called, Campbell Town which is known for it's Red Bridge which crosses the Elizabeth River.  The bridge is the oldest surviving arched bridge in Australia as is used as a National Highway. Construction began in 1836 and was finished in 1838.
The bricks (more than one and a half million) were made in the town itself. Convict-built to a European design it has needed very little repair work over the years and now carries well over two million vehicles a year.

Campbell Town also have good eateries so hence many people go to this town for lunch.

My husband and I went to Hobart for a family picnic for the day some 200 kms away, down south.  Hobart is the Capitol of Tasmania, Australia.
We always stop at Campbell Town so I can take a photo of the Red Bridge.
