Information

Heritage listed rail bridge in Stanthorpe. The bridge known as Red Bridge was constructed in 1886 as part of an interstate rail link between Queensland and Sydney.

There is an enjoyable and easy walk to reach the bridge. Quart Pot Creek meanders all the way through Stanthorpe, with five kilometres of walking pathways following the creek, dotted with lovely spots to picnic and playgrounds along the way.

To reach the Bridge, you may choose to park at the Stanthorpe Visitor Information Centre and walk from there, which involves crossing the creek near Maryland Street bridge on the low-level pedestrian bridge below the vehicle bridge, then turning right to walk eastward towards Red Bridge which is a little less than one kilometre from there. Alternatively, park closer to Red Bridge at the small parking lot where Rose Street meets Anzac Street at Heritage Park. Follow the creekside pathway from there, following in the direction away from the town centre, and it leads straight to the Red Bridge.
