10 November 2010 - Historic Swing Bridge in Sale
Looked like rain today but the radar said no, so time for a ride. Headed out to Longford via Gormandale and Stradbroke to have a look at the historic swing bridge near sale. This bridge turns on a central pivot to let boats pass from the Port of Sale to the Gippsland lakes. It was restored some time ago at a cost of $1,000,00. The main road now bypasses the bridge which is no longer open to traffic - well... cars anyway.
Made the return trip from Sale via Maffra, Heyfield, Cowarr and Toongabbie.
Total Distance 176 km.
