ABOUT THIS IMAGE
Hampden Bridge is a suspension bridge across the Kangaroo River, in the town of Kangaroo Valley, New
South Wales, Australia
. It is named after Lord Hampden, Governor of New South Wales from 1895 to 1899.

The bridge features four large crenellated turrets made of locally quarried sandstone. It is 77 metres long
(252 ft) and one lane wide. Construction began in 1895 and the bridge was opened quite fortuitously on
the 19 May 1898, just six days before floods washed the old decaying timber truss bridge away.

Hampden Bridge is the only surviving suspension bridge from the colonial period in New South Wales. It
was designed by Ernest Macartney de Burgh, the colony’s Assistant Engineer for Bridges. The medieval
tower style is an example of the Gothic Revival architecture popular in late nineteenth-century Australia.
This elaborate form, and the relatively sophisticated structural design of the span, reflect the importance
of this river crossing at the time of construction. The Cambewarra Road (now the Moss Vale Road) was
then a major route from Sydney to the south coast of NSW.

The area is now a popular visiting place for tourists.
