Campbell Town Bridge

On our 3rd day, we headed back to Launceston after breakfast at Freycinet (I think we just had peanut butter and jelly again). The Campbell Town Bridge was on my list of the things to see, so I was excited as we turn right to Midlands highway from Lake Leake highway . I thought we will be able to see the side of the bridge from the afar while inside the van, but we passed through the bridge didn’t see its structure.  I asked Andrew to pull over so I can see the bridge from the side.

Thankfully we stopped there, and good thing that I was really feeling cold that morning (no hot shower at Freycinet National Park!) because we just had the best coffee on our whole Tasmania trip!

Where is Campbell Town?

Red Bridge Cafe and Providore


The Red Bridge Cafe and Providore is seated just beside the bridge. It’s a usual stop for those driving between Launceston and Hobart as it’s situated somehow at the middle of the 2 towns. There was a lot of people when we got inside, some having breakfast and some just buying stuff from the deli. Although busy, the service was good and we got our mocha and lemon tart in few minutes.

Best Mocha!

Andrew was really happy about the coffee. He had at least one cup of coffee per day during our trip, and he said that this one from Campbell Town was the best. (He even threw a whole cup of coffee he bought from a national park cafe because he said it’s bad, that’s how picky he is on coffee).

We tried to go back to the cafe on the Saturday that we headed back to Launceston from Hobart. We left MONA before 5PM and thought that the cafe would be closing at 6, too bad it closes at 5:30.
