Artist's Description

This beautiful old five arch bridge still carries the Melbourne-Bendigo trains. I believe it is one of only two five arch stone bridges in the southern hemisphere.

From the Victorian Heritage Database:

The Rail Bridge, over Coliban River, Malmsbury, is a large, 500 feet long, rusticated basalt structure, erected in 1859 by Cornish and Bruce for the Victorian Railways. It carries the Melbourne-Bendigo Rail line (originally known as the Sandhurst line) over the Coliban River and comprises a five-span, segmented arch structure catering for two tracks and is faced with rusticated masonry.
