Tunks Creek Bridge

Crossing the iconic Tunks Creek Bridge

Located in the Berowra Valley Regional Park in the state of New South Wales, Australia, the Tunks Creek Bridge is one of the most spectacular bridges in the world.

This McDonald Timber Truss Bridge across Tunks Creek was constructed in 1893 and opened to public in 1894. It spans Tunks Creek (a tributary of Berowra Creek) in the valley of the Galston Gorge, carrying the Galston Gorge Road (Main Road 161).

The bridge is 19.99m (65.58 ft) long. Constructed with wooden planks, the bridge can be a little treacherous in the wet, but it’s mostly reasonably grippy. The bridge is said to be haunted by a ghost.
