This is 'The Little Sydney Harbour Bridge' on the Hume Highway near Tarcutta, NSW

This is 'The Little Sydney Harbour Bridge' on the Hume Highway near Tarcutta. GSA looks forward to seeing it on regular trip to and from Canberra and Melbourne. The bridge is a show-stopper. It is Hillas Creek Bridge opened in 1938 in NSW Australia.

The bridge is rare both on a local and a State level, being one of only two reinforced concrete bowstring arch bridges to be built in New South Wales. GSA think it is a marvelous venue for something special. Maybe a wedding. Or what a base to build a remarkable house on. The long and lat is: S 35 deg10.665 E 147 deg52.405

Opened on December 23, 1938 as part of the Tumblong - Tarcutta deviation, it carried Hume Highway traffic until 1986, and has become widely known as 'The Little Sydney Harbour Bridge'.

The bridge now stands in a field which is part of a sweepingly beautiful NSW rural valley about 100m off to the side of the Hume Highway.

It was by-passed in 1983 with the opening of dual carriageways which cross upstream of the bridge. Access is available to walk to the bridge.

The date marker is a heavy bronze plaque embedded in the concrete side of the bridge, and reads DMR 1938.

DMR stands for Department of Main Roads.
