For us, one of the things we found most interesting was the old stone and brick buildings built by convicts. So many of our New Zealand buildings are wood because of earthquakes that it is quite a novelty to see the beautiful old sandstone buildings.
Spiky Bridge, near Swansea, East Coast, Tasmania.
Another bridge called 'Spiky Bridge' was also a highlight. It is exactly what it says - it is spiky. No one seems to know why the convicts who built it put spikes on the side walls. Maybe to raise the height of the sides without having to find more stones? See below.
