We dropped in to the bridge on our way to Beaconsfield, it was worth the 5 minutes drive to the bridge to check it out. There is a rest area with toilets at the bridge.

This an impressive cable stayed bridge and the first in Australia. It was built in 1966-1968 and was named after John Batman the founder of Melbourne. There is a park beneath the bridge that gives good views and shows its size.

We stopped to take a look at this bridge whilst driving in the area. You can park and view it from beneath. We were headed to Rosevears and Brady's Lookout, it is best viewed side on from further up or down stream.
