As the oldest surviving stone arch bridge in Australia this beautiful bridge is worth a look if you're in the area, especially if you like bridges. Even moreover if you're a history buff or perhaps a student of engineering or somesuch. It was quite green there was well even though the locals say New South Wales has had quite a dry winter this year. There are stairs off to one side leading down allowing you to walk under the bridge and really get a sense for how sturdy this thing is. Even though the stone has been somewhat restored it's still a lovely site, and really of course it had to have a bit of work done to be safe, semis go trundling across it daily after all and they didn't plan for those back in the 1800's. If you're in the Blue Mountains it's worth a quick look.

This bridge is very attractive, even though it is quite old. The bridge was finished in July 1833. This was the first stone bridge on the mainland of Australia. It is now the oldest stone-arch bridge in Australia.

It is very pretty. We explored everything about this bridge, as it was attractive. We walked on it, we walked on the stairs and went under the bridge. We had a great time and lots of pictures as well.

As we passed this bridge, we found lots of parking on the right.

This bridge is worthwhile to admire it!

Unfortunately the bridge is under repair until approximately 2017 and so has fencing around it with limited viewing.

This oldest stone arch bridge in Australia. Very attractive location surrounded by hiking routes. The bridge itself is worth the trip and there are steps leading down into the gulley so you can get a good look at it from all angles. Make a short detour off of the main road to the Blue Mountains to see the bridge or make a longer trip and try some of the short hikes in the surrounding woodland.

We visited this Bridge on our way through the Blue Mtns & it was worth the short detour off the Highway, it is the oldest surviving stone Arch Bridge on the Australian Mainland, opened in ‘1833’ it is set in a pretty area of the Blue Mtn’s & amazing to think it was built so long ago by the convicts, worth a look.

There are several stair tracks in this area which require a moderate amount of pysical activity. The walk to the bridge itself from the bottom of Mitchells Pass is approximately 10 min walk with flat ground perfect for the family with kids on bikes, scooters etc.

I live nearby and have done the 'top' walk along the dried up bush land. Both times we walked around and found nothing of interest. I did recently walk under lennox bridge and found a VERY treacherous rainforest like landscape. Not suitable for children. We were both beginers though, but after about 20mins in it was getting too treacherous for us. However, this was an interesting walk because we located something very unexpected; Old rusted cars. There were at least 5 cars that had been abandoned from fatal (?) car crashes over 20 years ago. Whilst being filled with contemplation, we found this walk a moving experience and would go on it again. Do not go if the weather has been rainy/stormy. Ensure you take water and mosquito repellent. Must have good shoes and most certainly no pets (we wanted to go one time earlier but had our dogs).

This beautiful historic bridge, distant from the crowd and surrounded by nature, is protected away from the traffic and makes an awesome experience for anybody that is looking for a nice day out, learning something about Australia's engineering/history and wants to get a little walk.

The bridge itself is part of the road but there is a parking lot near it, where you can leave your car to then walk a bit down stairs to appreciate the stone arc from the bottom or just walk the bush.

Sadly the arc has been vandalised with graffiti and some litter but nothing too serious.

If you are planning a little escape from Sydney and you are on your way to the Blue Mountains I will really recommend this little detour (exit to Blaxland and head to Mitchells Pass), you won't miss it unless you are extremely distracted, the road just after the bridge becomes one way, but you can easily come back the same way you got there, back to your little excursion to the Blue Mountains.

If you enjoyed Blaxland and love bridges, there is another one highly recommended close(ish) to this bridge, is called Knapsack Viaduct... A lot more appealing and less isolated than this one. Sadly tripadvisor doesn't have it on the list of things to do, but the view of the plains and Sydney is just unreal.

Follow the signs to Lennox Bridge to see the oldest bridge on the Australian mainland.

It's well signposted and plaques at the bridge provide the history of the bridge. If you're keen, walk down the stops behind the bridge to get to the bottom / underneath of the bridge. It's very clean although vandals have spray painted part of the under side of the bridge.

There are walking tracks nearby too if you feel like a longer walk.
