The "original" one tree bridge site is located on the north side of the road, and is represented by an old log, there is a new suspension walk bridge on the south side of the road to get from one side to the other you have a walk trail next to the river under the road. Associated with this site is bar-be-que areas, toilets and a short walk to Glenoran Pool

Lovely tranquil place at the bottom of the valley amongst the tall Karri trees. Between Manjimup and Nannup.There are some nice short bushwalks along the river where you will come across some waterfalls. They join part of the Bibbilmin Track. The historic One Tree Bridge (now in ruins) is seen here on display and you can cross the newer suspension walk bridge.

What a great bridge. A lovely little walk and so much has been done to make it worth a visit. We loved it.

This is a neat spot to wonder around. Swimming - trout fishing - couple of short bush walks and some views of the skyscrapers of the bush - check out the suspension bridge close by as well. Connects to the Bibbidilum Track for the fit and energetic- plenty of places for a picnic.

So the bridge in the photo is not actually one tree bridge, following the path under the road you come across a small remaining section of the bridge.
I guess if you are in the area, go have a look, but nothing to be amazed about.

If you are in the area of Manjimup the One Tree Bridge is worth looking at. We were both very impressed as to the size of the single tree which had bee felled and dropped the entire width of Donnelly River and made into a bridge for horses and carts.
It no longer spans the river but has been deposited next to the bank.
We found it tricky to find and were on the verge of giving up when my husband spotted a small sign. You actually need to go past the new suspension walking bridge and go underneath the road. The path then leads you to the One Tree Bridge. This is also the place from which you start the walk to The Four Aces.

It's been a couple of years since I first visited this historic site, a once proud achievement of the local timber industry and workers whereby they felled one tree and created a river crossing using the trunk as the main bridging structure on which a deck was built. This was eventually replaced and relocated to a nearby clearing, fenced off and left to rot away in contemptof the history it represents.
The site is overgrown, poorly maintained (if at all) and the decking has collapsed. I took visiting friends to see this recently and was appalled at the decline in the past 2 years, and embarrassed at offering it up as a tourist attraction to those friends. In the interim, a suspension walking bridge has been installed beside the traffic bridge and as part of the Bibbulmun Track and Munda Biddi Trail and this is a wonderful addition for all, not just ardent walkers. What a pity that some extra effort isn't being given to the One Tree Bridge itself, but I fear it's too late.

Perhaps nice for a picnic but don't expect any-thing special.The old bridge is no longer there and the replacement is not interesting at all1

We camped up the road at Green Island camp site. Then walked along the track the few km to the one tree bridge. The walk was lovely and there were some great natural bridges made of fallen trees across the river. These I would recommend walking up to, just follow the track up river. The one tree bridge was only a section in the old bridge with little information and right next to the busy road.

It is interesting as it is a very old bridge (presumably), but it has no information about it. You have to go under the road bridge to find it. It was presumably just one tree once upon a time, but at some point had a wooden frame added. And since it isn't across the river anymore, it isn't acting as a bridge anymore either.
Stop if passing perhaps, but not sure it is worth a special trip.
