About Noojee Trestle Bridge
The Noojee Trestle Bridge dates back to 1919 when it was first constructed as part of the railway which ran from Noojee to Warragul. Sadly in 1939 the bridge was burnt down by a bush fire and was rebuilt in 1939.
You can walk across the 102 metre long historical bridge which is 21 metres high! As you walk across the bridge you hear creaks, imagine what it would’ve been like to hear the old steam trains rattle across the bridge, the smell of the steam from the engines….today it is a tranquil place to visit with the smell of the eucalyptus trees which surround the beautiful bridge.
The Noojee Trestle Bridge Rail Trail
The Noojee Trestle Bridge Rail Trail is a great place for a walk or a bike ride if you are looking for a scenic journey through a gorgeous forest. The trail is 2kms one way gravel/dirt track.
The Noojee Trestle Bridge Walk
For those not into cycling or don’t have your bicycle with you then you can opt for the 6km, approximately 2hrs return walk. Like the Rail Trail it is a very scenic dirt/gravel track which is surrounded by tall eucalyptus trees. If you are looking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life this is a great place to be. Don’t forget to stop and admire the scenery as you take in deep breaths of fresh air with fragrance of eucalyptus.
