Strolled up the main road to visit the bridge / viaduct. Was interesting to read about the history but it will be better when the viewing platform is finished.

Just image the stories this bridge could tell about the history of this area. Both the old road bridge and railway bridge are testimony to the heavy duty building techniques of olden days.

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.
