Stumbled across this amazing site, and spent a long time there looking at the bridges and lamenting regarding the brilliant workmanship, and the amazing ability of the bridge to survive the test of time and flood. The bridge is classified by the National Trust, and should be preserved.

Love these long span wooden rail bridges in country NSW. Reminder of times gone by. In remarkable condition. Do hope a grant helps restore it but there is something wonderful about its original state. Majestic!

We didn't know that Gundagai has these old historic bridges still standing. There is also a railway bridge running next to this old bridge. When I was a kid my family and myself used to rattle over this bridge with caravan in tow when it was part of the Hume highway. Driving under the bridge you can see the monument... More

We visited Gundagai in March, 2015. We drove around the historic town and came across the information displayed at the town end of the old Prince Alfred Bridge and the railway bridge. These are amazing examples of how our early citizens were confronted with major problems and how they went about fixing them even though they did not possess the... More

Make sure when your staying or driving thru Gundagai make sure you stop and look at these to classic old bridge. They are a great testament to the older days and how they made bridges. You can view them from both ends however you cannot cross them. Or you can actually drive down into the paddocks where they stand and... More

We saw the two bridges when passing through Gundagai on our way to Tumut. They look quite spectacular set against the very green river bed. Well worth a look.

Such a shame to see these iconic bridges in such disrepair. They could be such a tourist attraction if you could walk and cycle them. Make sure you view from the Gundagai look out and also visit the Historic Train Station.

Don't drive past Gundagai. Learn about our history of times gone by that made this country. A must visit are the two trestle bridges that span the valley and marvel at the shear craftsmanship and labour of these incredible structures.

We stopped over when we were in Gundagai for a visit. As a history buff I am always looking for the old stuff and these two bridges hit the spot. They are old and beautiful. Well worth a visit if you are in Gundagai, but nothing really to get out of your way unless you are a bridge entusiast.

These 2 old bridges really make you appreciate just how things have changed and how much better our roads and rail are now. They stretch off into the distance, quite an engineering feat. They are easy to find at the far end of the main street in the town, and there's sufficient parking. Unfortunately, since our last visit a couple... More
