Worth a stop to read the board and see the history of the area. Blink and you'll miss it so be on the lookout

All the times I've driven up and down the east coast I've never noticed this bridge before. Well worth a stop and read about the history.

Worth a quick stop. It was only 20 metres from the main road and easy to find. It had a great little storyboard which explained the history and was well worth the stop.

A hand wrought feat of engineering that endures to this day. Well worth a break in the drive to take it in and pay respect to our convict heritage.

What an interesting little structure on the way out of Swansea to Hobart. Worth a 15 minute stop to admire the interesting architecture and history of this bridge.
