Also known as Tramway Bridge, this hidden gem is often overlooked by those heading north into the bushland or to the town of Walhalla. Situated approximately 4km walk north from Walhalla Road, it offers a grade 3 walk through bushland and fauna along the Thomson River. Originally constructed in 1900 to service the firewood needs of the Long Tunnel Mining Company, it is testament to the engineers of the day given the quality of construction and its isolated location.
A full 8km round trip, the walk leaves the Thomson Railway Station on the Walhalla Goldfields Railway, and offers a good day out for the able-bodied walker. The trek offers undulating and meandering views of the river, ravine and surrounding wildlife. So throw on the backpack and check it out!
