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.

We stopped in Gundagai while on our way to Sydney. There are some beautiful old historic bridges that were built over the Murrumbridgee Flats not used anymore but great to photograph. We took several.

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
