This is Lennox Bridge on Mitchell’s Pass in Lapstone, New South Wales, Australia.
Constructed in 1833, this is the oldest bridge on the Australian mainland.
Stone used in this convict-built structure was quarried from about 500m higher up the gully.
The bridge continued to be part of the main route to the west until 1926, when the highway was re-routed across Knapsack Viaduct.
Structural damage necessitated closure of the bridge in the 1950’s.
After being dismantled & rebuilt, historic Lennox Bridge was re-opened to light traffic in 1982. The road below the bridge is now one-way traffic down to the old highway at Emu Plains. Access Mitchell’s Pass by leaving the highway at McDonalds, Blaxland, & proceeding straight ahead.
