Both the road and railway bridges in this location are interesting, it is a pity we could not get onto or under them to have a closer look. There is a move to renovate at least some of the bridge(s) to enhance the visitor experience, I wish them well, it is a worthy project

In its day this would have been a magnificent bridge. It is in urgent need of repair and a local said they were planning on demolishing it but I pray this is not the case. The railway bridge next to it is still in okay condition and together they take great photos.

The old bridges at Gundagai are best viewed from below. If you follow the road across to south Gundagai and turn into the showground the views of the old bridges really open up. The old rivergums provide great subjects for photos.

Interesting to see that they have been fundraising for decades to try and restore this bridge. We love exploring the history and culture of a town so if your in Gundagai come have a look.

Another piece of of Gundagai history it a shame this bridge could be knocked down in need of a big time restoration, would be nice to see the piece of history fixed up it might attract more visitors to the town

Worth having a look just for the height and length and to check out the history of the floods. Not a common sight today.

This was an amazing feat of engineering in its day. My husband and I just stood and pondered the magnificent timber structure. At some stage people could walk out onto the bridge but this has since been closed off. Please save this bridge! It is an important part of our history.
