Well worth a visit and easy to find. It’s a very narrow bridge so take care when crossing over it, Great that it has been retained for future generations to enjoy

This 1880 single lane suspension bridge is beautiful. About a km out of town it is still in operation. A great example of the wonderful bridges that used to dot the region.
