Reviewed 15 March 2013

To just stand and look in awe at these testaments to days gone by.
Imagine days of old, trains thundering by.

“WOW”
Reviewed 28 January 2013

If you are venturing off the freeway for whatever reason, definitely take a look around Gundagai!

The Prince Alfred Bridge is stunning to look at. The history of the bridge and Viaduct is explained on signs/ plaques. Bring your camera, the bridge across the floodplains is amazing.

It is too old and in too much disrepair to walk on but it is still worth a look.

“Never knew it was there!”
Reviewed 8 January 2013

I've been driving the Melbourne-Sydney route for most of my life but I've never stopped to look at these bridges. The bridges are a wonderful part of Australian history. They are five minutes off the Hume Highway and well worth the stop.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 19 December 2012

I only hope the Government helps to restore this magnificent structure. It's huge! It was the old Hume Highway, It's been hit by hundreds of floods and the white ants have been feeding off of it for years but the Prince Alfred Bridge still stands, for now. Get in and see this spectacular piece of Australian History before it is gone forever.

“What a mess”
Reviewed 23 November 2012

The two, century old wooden bridges are a truely great attraction. Or could be. The people and authorities here have done nothing to save/restore these historic monuments, which are in an extremely bad condition. What a disaster! Would never have happend in Europe. But well. still interesting to see.
