Welcome to Hampden Bridge Heritage, a celebration of Australia’s last surviving wooden suspension bridge and arguably one of the most important example of bridge engineering heritage in Australia, second only the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
The Friends of Hampden Bridge in Kangaroo Valley is a non profit making cooperative that includes the Road Traffic Authority (RTA), who maintain the bridge, the Kangaroo Valley community, who love the bridge, businesses that use the bridge and visitors who come to appreciate its qualities and unique history. The Friends of Hampden Bridge in Kangaroo Valley was formed in 2010 to establish:
- bipartisan collaboration during the restoration of this significant Victorian construction
- to protect and share its history for future generations
- to set an example of the benefits of establishing cooperation between all parties to take responsible action to conserve and promote their heritage places
The Friends of Hampden Bridge in Kangaroo Valley is an example of state government agency, local government, community organisations, private businesses, individual members of the community and tourists coming together to:
- conserve this important Australian heritage asset
- report restoration phases and access across Hampden Bridge
- offer tours and “behind the scenes” glimpses of the restoration work
Join our Campaign to celebrate and conserve Hampden Bridge in Kangaroo Valley for future generations
