This Rest Area is in Blackburn Park in Tasmania, approximately 68km South of Launceston. The park is right on the Elizabeth River which is spanned by the Red Bridge.
One of Tasmania’s original bridges, completed in 1838 by convict labour. Throughout the park are also scattered some very unique and poignant sculptures. They are handcrafted with a chain saw by local Eddie Freeman, from 80 year old trees. They depict aspects of Campbell Town and Tasmania’s History.
