We called in here on our back to Lakes Entrance from Buchan Caves. Glad we did! Although the construction is a great example of what our forefathers achieved in the early 1900's, it is unfortunate that it is badly deteriorating, however, still worthy of a...More

Being a Victorian Railways fanatic I had to visit this bridge, one of the largest trestle ever built by the railways. A shame you cannot walk across at this stage. It would be great to see it restored. Well worth a quick detour if driving...More

On our way to Buchan caves we observed a little Board indicating this bridge. When we reached the location we were really amazed to see this massive trestle bridge in the middle of the bush.

Lots to admire here by examining how this bridge and others like it in the vicinity were constructed. First log the timber, a feat in itself.
