Old Trestle Bridge

Type:
Historic Landmarks
Location:
Over Hanford’s Creek, Pyalong VIC 3521 (See map)

The Rail Bridge over Hanford's Creek is a rare opportunity to view a largely intact timber trestle bridge. The distinctive construction method used to build this bridge makes it architecturally significant to Victoria and is visited by train buffs from all over the country.

It was constructed for the Victorian Railways in 1890 by McDermott & Sons for the Victorian Railways along the Wandong-Bendigo line, near Pyalong.

The line was primarily used to deliver timber shafts to the Bendigo mines before it closed in 1968. Wool and sheep were also transported on this line.
