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

The bridge and railway trestles are in disrepair but have so much character about them. Great for photos as the sun is going down. The crooked lines and worn timbers look great from a bygone era.

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.
