Historical site with information about the early settlement. Interesting reading about the early settlement and floods. Nearby buildings add further interest.

Stayed next to bridges and opposite mill in temporary camp zone. Fantastic sites. So easy to imagine the pass. With the township of photos in gallery and wonderful museum. The marble work display within the information Centre well worth seeing. Gundagai is a must for traveller for a greater understanding of our country

Take the time to read the various plaques around town about the floods in the 1800s that washed the original town away.

We ventured into Gundagai looking for petrol station unaware that there was one a little further down the road, and after receiving directions from a friendly local to the South end of town happened on the two enormous bridges, The Prince Alfred Bridge and neighbouring Railway Bridge, in the Murrumbidgee flats and what a lovely and enchanting surprise they were....

It was a stinking hot day but we were able to remain in the comfort of our air conditioned car to view this site. There is a great big sign you can drive up to that explains the history of the bridge and then you can view the bridge from either end by driving right up to the ends. The... More

I stopped to look at the two historic bridges; well worth a drive around the town; lots of lovely old buildings & gorgeous countryside.

Being a relatively young country, Australia cannot boast the wealth of historic buildings and structures that European countries can but it is relics of the past such as this that provide insight to the ingenuity of our early pioneers and the difficulties they faced in implementing solutions to the difficulties they faced opening up this vast continent. This old rickety... More

This old bridge is justifiably known as an iconic landmark. Once the longest bridge in NSW before the Sydney Harbour Bridge was built in 1932, today it has to be described as having seen better days. But if interesting structures float your boat, then this wonderful bridge spanning the Murrumbidgee flood plain is not to be missed. "Araluen'" the former... More

Such an historic site to discover, my grandsons thought they should be in a movie such as Harry Potter! Eerie at dusk with the mist, rain and silhouette of the trees. I hope they are preserved, certainly should be!
