Northam – Bridges


Last weekend we visited the wheatbelt town of Northam, about 100km east of Perth. It’s a few kilometres off the Great Eastern Highway, but well worth the detour.

Northam is on the Avon River and has several interesting bridges. You drive across the road bridge above to enter the town. The suspension footbridge below is right next to the tourist information office. It looks flimsy and bounces when you walk across it, but was built to hold up to 400 people. You can walk from one bridge to the other, and then return on the other side of the river.
