PHOTO OF THE WEEK

By Joan Baker


The theme was, Something Old. 

The bridge is part of the Cairns to Herberton Railway which reached Herberton in 1910. It was built to transport the tin from Herberton to the coast. 

The bridge is found close to the tunnel near Herberton and was constructed around 1909/10.

The line is now closed and this beautiful old bridge now stands unused and in great condition considering was built over a hundred years ago. 

The above information was kindly provided to me by the Atherton - Herberton Historic Railway.
