Long Description:
The Brewarrina Lift Bridge opened on December 7th 1888 and is the furthest upstream of four similar bridges built across the Darling-Barwon River and is the second oldest. The lift span of 17.3m allowed paddlesteamers towing barges loaded with wool to pass.The bridge is now closed to vehicular traffic since a new concrete bridge was opened a few metres upstream
Visit Instructions:
1) After you've found a vertical lift bridge, go visit it, get the coordinates, a picture or two of it, and if it is in use or not still as a lift bridge.
Then log it and post your pictures! At least one of the photos must be of you and your GPS there with the bridge in the background. (No old vacation shots or photos off the internet!)
2) Include the coordinates, city/county/state/country and the name of the bridge (if it has one).
3) Include any interesting information about the structure
