Stayed at the caravan park right next to the bridge. Lovely walk over the bridge and around the surrounding park lands at sunrise. Interesting relevant information can be seen when walking across the middle of the bridge

Historic bridge opening at set times and stops traffic. The bridge is a vertical lifting design which is offset by counterweight blocks and only uses a small electric motor to drive the mechanism. The best place to view the bridge is from the park adjacent...More

Very narrow bridge but semi trailers use day and night it so okay for vigilant vanner to traverse at the recommended 30kms per hour. Has separate spans to separate incoming and outgoing traffic. Piece of historic engineering still performing a vital function to allow larger...More

During our stay in Renmark, and we drove over this bridge many times. It is rather narrow, and towing a caravan over it is bit of a concern. Wish you could stop on it, as the views up and down river are beautiful.

I wouldn't go out of my way to see this. It's an old historic bridge that opens a couple of times per day. Would be interesting to see it open but we were there at the wrong time. Ok but don't bust your boiler to...More

Great to see this bridge in action and still going strong, a nice novelty. Plenty of parking before you get to the grassy banks to view the boats going under the bridge.

We were lucky enough to see the bridge open at 2.30pm to let 3 houseboats through. Great viewing of history, I have seen bridges open before but it was a first for my teenage daughter. The park was lovely & we sat there admiring the...More

Unless you are lucky enough to see it operate it is just a bridge on the main road. The river is quite picturesque at this point.

This is a neat place to watch the boats going up and down the river at anytime, but a couple of times a day you are treated to seeing the bridge lift, to allow the big houseboats through. Great fun! A few fish in the...More

It depends on when it needs to lift. It happens when a large boat needs to pass underneath. Once or several times a day. Never at night.
