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.

I really wanted to enjoy this bridge and the railway track opposite. I have ridden the Central Otago rail trail and all I can say is that these bridges are a lost opportunity. This magnificent all Bridge and railway line could be restored and turned into a rail Trail for people on horses, pushbike or walking from Cootamundra to Tumut... More

It is well worth getting off the highway and looking through the town of Gundagai if you are into old Australia. Great old bridge, buildings, signage. You can feel how the town worked with the surrounding farm areas in days gone by

I can remember driving across this bridge as a child so I am amazed it is still standing but looks like th next flood will wash it down river. Interesting views from both sides but not able to walk on the bridge anymore

Stayed next to bridges and opposite mill in temporary camp zone. Fantastic sites. So easy to imagine the pass. With the township of photos in gallery and wonderful museum. The marble work display within the information Centre well worth seeing. Gundagai is a must for traveller for a greater understanding of our country
