“An interesting, if delapidated site”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

At the top end of the main street is this historic site. You are unlikely to spend a lot of time here but its worth a look. Nice dilapidated bit of history that you would miss whilst zooming along the freeway. Pity some money could not be spent to fix it up to enable a walk across. But the remnants convey some idea of the way Gundagai was back in the days. Y

“Interesting area to visit”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

When staying in Gundagai it is worth having a look at the old bridge area and the main street. Have a walk up the main street as a number of the shops have the history of the shop on a sign. Continue the walk down along past the War Memorial and down to the bridge area. It is unfortunate that the bridges are in such a bad state of repair. If you walk along the river along the back road you can see a number of signs detailing the history and important events of the area. The flood depth sign is interesting to read. In fact, it is one of the best and most informative signed areas I have visited.

“Worth a quick stop”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Delay your drive between Melbourne and Sydney to see two knackered old bridges? Doesn't sound like a great idea, but even though these bridges are old, long, and unfortunately in a terrible state, they are worth seeing. A window to an older slower Australia. Take a couple of pictures and then drive onto your destination.

“Old bridges”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

To just stand and look in awe at these testaments to days gone by.
Imagine days of old, trains thundering by.

“WOW”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

If you are venturing off the freeway for whatever reason, definitely take a look around Gundagai!

The Prince Alfred Bridge is stunning to look at. The history of the bridge and Viaduct is explained on signs/ plaques. Bring your camera, the bridge across the floodplains is amazing.

It is too old and in too much disrepair to walk on but it is still worth a look.
