Wander along the Lowood to Coominya section of the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail and you will see the heritage listed Lockyer Creek Railway Bridge (Clarendon). The bridge was added to the Queensland Heritage register in 1992.
Henry Charles Stanley designed the bridge which was built between 1885 and 1886 and is considered significant due to its age, mixed material construction of timber and steel, and the fact that it is highly intact and its original design has been maintained.
The Lockyer Creek Bridge is one of only a few major bridges created along the Brisbane Valley Branch rail line, so next time you are out and about on the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail, take a moment to experience this piece of history still standing today.
