“lovely place for a day trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

we took the ferry over from nelson bay to tea gardens and had a lovely 45 min trip across the bay and down the myall river, under the singing bridge and had a coffee at a place called nicoles, then came back for the return journey. not much to see at tea gardens, but a lovely way to spend a few hours on the river.

“Walk across to hear it sing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

This bridge was built during the sand mining boom and it really does sing. Best to leave your car on one side and walk across to hear it best, usually late afternoon.

“Sing???”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Really is a lot to do about nothing. Maybe you need gale force winds to hear it sing!! A romantic notion!!!

“Great for a walk.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Lovely bridge, lots of dolphins to see and wild life. Could watch the parasailing over at Nelson bay. Watched the boats in the river. Be careful of the traffic.

“Have to be lucky to get a song!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Well, this is only a bridge over the Karuah River when it's all said and done! Yes, with the right wind conditions it gets up a humm, and you can walk over on the narrow footpath and admire the view.
Catching the ferry over from Nelson Bay and seeing the dolphins at play is a bonus. Sitting on the rivers edge at Tea Tree, enjoying fish and chips is definately a very enjoyable way to spend some time. We have taken guests from overseas here many times and the ferry ride, plus the dolphins plus the river setting is always good. There are restaurants here for the more discerning gourmet, or you can have a few beers in the local. All in all a trip to Tea Tree passing under the singing bridge is a trip to remember!
