I love bridges and this one was amazing. It is huge and so old. Perfect to photograph. Will be amazing in black and white.

Well worth a close look from under this old timber bridge. Gundagai is a quiet small town along the Hume highway which is now bypassed but still worth look. But warning, we stayed at the Garden Motel which is on a hill with all the highway noise drifting up the hill. Very old and tired property. If we hadn't booked... More

What a wonderful piece of history. A tragedy that the bridge will not be restored and kept for future generations. To hear of the stories and to learn of the history of this bridge is an amazing piece of the past .I am blessed to have been able to see this while you can.

These two bridges, one rail and one road are a testiment to the Aussie can do attitude. The early engineers did not let a flood plain stand in their way, they just built the bridges. It is a shame to see them both fall into disrepair. While I appreciate there is only so much public money to go around, it... More

Really liked this bridge and the rail viaduct that runs close to it (which is the longest wooden truss structure in Australia). Can view the bridge from both ends; one of which has a short information sign, at this end you can also see the only remaining building (The Old Mill) approximately 100m away. You cannot walk on this structure... More

Sadly this beautiful old structure has been closed for use and is falling further into a state of disrepair. Distressing to see the old structures across the river in such bad condition. Excellent to imagine them in their prime as the veins of the country areas that kept the towns connected and alive...

So historic and big, set in green fields. Needs to be photographed from a distance.Interesting, even to non rail enthusiasts. Easy to find as it is on the road into town.

We have been using Gundagai as stop over half way to Sydney ( ex Melb. ) for years and have always marvelled at the 2 historic bridges. Have looked at their sorry state of disrepair, but have always thought what a shame, but then added we can't afford to restore them. Funny that we visit Europe every second year, only... More

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.
