Old Railway Bridge Nannup


Built in 1908 to link Nannup with Busselton and Bunbury, the railway provided the means of transport for timber and farm produce from the area until better roads and motor transport meant the closing of the railway in 1984.

Upstream from the bridge is the site of the horse ford - the original river crossing used by early settlers.

  1. The old Jarrah bridges were really built to last! I'm glad they don't tear them down, they make fantastic photo opportunities. Another hot weekend hey Rae, looking forward to a few cooler days.
