Beech Creek Trestle Bridge

 Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning.

Built nearly 100 years ago, rebuilt in the 1960’s and hit by the catastrophic 2009 bush fires, the Beech Creek Trestle Bridge was originally part of a complex mountain tram tracks network. 

The network climbed through the Rubicon Forest for 10 kilometres, linking hydroelectric power stations and sawmills that were scattered through the bush. For years the mountain tram tracks were the only mode of transport in and out of the remote forest for workers and their families who lived there.

Stokes Rousseau were engaged by theDepartment of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) to rebuild the bridge to original conditions, now to be be used by bushwalkers.
