Lennox Bridge, opened in 1833, is the oldest surviving stone arch bridge on the Australian mainland. It crosses Brookside Creek (also known as Lapstone Creek) on the road known as Mitchells Pass. It replaced an earlier crossing of the creek further south, which today survives as a walking track. A nearby quarry is thought to have been created for the purpose of providing stone for the bridge.
The bridge served the main route to the Blue Mountains for 93 years until 1926, when the Great Western Highway was re-routed via the Knapsack Viaduct. It was closed in 1967 but later strengthened and repaired with an internal concrete structure and it re-opened in 1982.

Lennox Bridge just off the Great Western Highway and worth a quick look. Great walks and trail cycling as well. Not your average attraction. more »
This is the oldest stone arched bridge built be unskilled convict labour. A beautiful single span bridge with a lot of history attached. It was the major traffic route through the blue mountains until the mid 1920’s. Well worth the visit. Beautifully built by hand out of local sandstone.
Being one of the oldest bridges in Australia, this bridge still holds itself up much to its quality, with plenty of space around for a bit of parking and the intriguing aspect as it becomes a one-way road when you cross over towards Emu Plains. Worth checking out and admiring its grandeur.
