Possibly one of the country’s prettiest bridges, the Ross Bridge spans the Macquarie River in the historic town of Ross in Tasmania. It was built in 1836, by convict labour. The two convict stonemasons were James Colbeck and Daniel Herbert. Herbert, the creator of the exquisite carvings on the arches of both sides of the bridge gained his freedom upon the completion of the work.
This beautiful sandstone bridge is still in use today and is Australia’s third oldest working bridge.
