Timboon Trestle Bridge

Timboon Trestle Bridge

The Timboon Trestle Bridge is the most significant of the 34 bridges along the Camperdown to Timboon rail trail.

Located near the lime kilns to the west of town, the Timboon Trestle Bridge was built in 1892 and closed in 1988. It crosses the Curdies river. It was constructed of 20 trestles of large diameter bush timber poles bolted together with sawn timber superstructure and footway in traditional and utilitarian bridge and wharf building technique. The bridge is one of the few surviving railway structures of this type in Victoria and illustrates vernacular bridge building traditions of the late 19th century.

It was restored and reopened in November 2010. The Timboon Trestle Bridge is listed with Heritage Victoria and is easily accessible by road or trail.
