The Old Goulburn bridge at Trawool

This old wooden bridge was removed a few years back and was replaced with a modern concrete structure. The old bridge was fondly remembered by many who lived in the area. As a child I remember swimming there in the summer, when the river was low. The river was a popular fishing place and the bridge provided good shelter from the heat in the summer...also, large Murray Cod used to linger amongst the snags. Many family picnics were enjoyed in the area... Today, the highway is much busier...people don't frequent this spot like they used to .
