This bridge has to be seen to be believed especially as it was built so long ago. Unfortunately it is not in a good state of repair so is closed to traffic, however there are several good vantage points with great views. It is a very picturesque setting.

It was so long it was hard to believe. There were two bridges - one for road & one for rail. The wood was in a bad state of repair so they were closed to traffic.

this bridge is very pretty and being so close to town centre it is worth driving past even for the photo opportunity alone.

The two old bridges are a piece of Australia's history and although a viewing platform seems to be underway, it is not complete. However, it is possible to read up on the interesting history of the bridges and the region at the sign boards and to get underneath the bridges for some great photo's. You don't need a lot of...

As a child, we often visited grandparents in Melbourne. Gundagai was a place we often stayed as it was about halfway between Sydney and Melbourne. I recall being in the car as we rattled our way over this long timber bridge which allowed for 2 cars to pass but I don't think 2 trucks could pass. The railway came to... More

At the top end of the main street is this historic site. You are unlikely to spend a lot of time here but its worth a look. Nice dilapidated bit of history that you would miss whilst zooming along the freeway. Pity some money could not be spent to fix it up to enable a walk across. But the remnants... More

When staying in Gundagai it is worth having a look at the old bridge area and the main street. Have a walk up the main street as a number of the shops have the history of the shop on a sign. Continue the walk down along past the War Memorial and down to the bridge area. It is unfortunate that... More

Delay your drive between Melbourne and Sydney to see two knackered old bridges? Doesn't sound like a great idea, but even though these bridges are old, long, and unfortunately in a terrible state, they are worth seeing. A window to an older slower Australia. Take a couple of pictures and then drive onto your destination.

To just stand and look in awe at these testaments to days gone by. Imagine days of old, trains thundering by.
