You have to see this for real to appreciate the scale and skill. Worth the short walk through the botanic gardens ( which could do with some TLC).

We could not believe this beautiful viaduct hidden away, amazing to see and so beautifully built. Worth a stop and short walk from the car park to see the railway bridge.

good little park. Easy to get around for people with a disabilty, but the toilets could do with an upgrade. Geese are great. Running over to greet people a soon as they see a picnic basket. They do keep their distance though.

Amazing...... Take the time to walk to the base of the Viaduct/Aquaduct and look up. The stonemason work is impeccable. 600 men took 1 year to build this structure. It is an amazing piece of engineering. There is an explanation available of the structure on...More

The viaduct forms part of the Bendigo to Melbourne rail line. There is an informative interpretive board at the rear of the Malmsbury Botanic Gardens which describes the history of the viaduct, the architect and engineer. A stunning structure that is surviving the test of...More
