Remnants of the 2nd Breakfast Creek Bridge (North)

Summary

The construction of the second Breakfast Creek Bridge represented an important achievement for the local government authorities of the time; the Booroodabin Divisional Board and the Shire of Windsor. The bridge, constructed circa 1889, was an essential item of infrastructure for the district, providing not only road access, but also essential services such as phone and power lines later on. All that remains of the second Breakfast Creek Bridge now are remnants on the northern and southern creek banks.
