The Hawkesbury River Railway Bridge reaches over the river of the same name and connects Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane together. There were actually two bridges with the first being completed in 1886 by the Union Bridge Company of New York. This first bridge was an engineering marvel but do to overuse this first bridge required strengthening until cracks were discovered in the 1930s and a replacement was deemed necessary. The second bridge was not finished until 1946 six year after initial construction began.
The new bridge is about 60 meters upstream of the old bridge and features elegant archways and eight spans. The old bridge was removed once the new bridge was completed but you will still be able to see the sandstone piers. The Hawkesbury River Railway is a popular railway for visitors who want to travel by train to any of the cities that are accessible by it. The bridge provides an outstanding glimpse of Hawkesbury River and the surrounding forest.
