The Sale Swing Bridge is the oldest surviving swing bridge in Australia and was the first movable bridge constructed in Victoria. Construction took place between 1880 and 1883. The bridge spans the La Trobe River and swings to allow boats to travel to and from the Port of Sale. The heritage listed bridge was vandalised in 2016, but was re-opened in 2017 after a $160,000 repair project.

The scheduled opening times for the swing bridge are:
Saturdays and Sundays: Between 3.00pm and 4.00pm
Second Wednesday of every month: Between 11.00am and 12.00pm
