Millhouse on the Bridge was built in 1853 on the banks of the
meandering Coal River in southern Tasmania. It overlooks Richmond Bridge--built
of sandstone by convicts in 1823it is Australia's oldest bridge. Millhouse was
originally a steam-driven flour mill. It was converted into a home in the 1920s
by Australian landscape artist John Eldershaw. The property is classified by
both the National Trust and the National Estate
Millhouse on the Bridge has been restored as a quality B&B with four guestrooms under the one roof. The antique beds of brass mahogany and huon pine, the totally private facilities, central heating, log fires and cooked breakfasts in the sunroom ensure a memorable stay.
Guests can wander in the gardens on the 4½ acre property. Or relax under the historic silver poplars that fringe the side of the riverbank.
