Geocache Description:


Long before there were swinging or suspension bridges, there were bridges constructed of stone. Our forefathers built these incredible structures over small and large ravines to carry all forms of transport. These engineering marvels have not only stood the test of time, they have now become tourist attractions all over the world.

Lennox Bridge is the oldest bridge on mainland Australia, it is situated on Mitchell’s Pass in the Blue Mountains NSW Australia. David Lennox and 20 convicts built this bridge in 1833. Its unique design was well ahead of its time with the western side being straight and the eastern side having a graceful curve.

To log this cache, simply find a stone bridge that has stood the test of time and fits the criteria, post a picture of the bridge with your GPS in the picture, the coordinates of where the bridge is and its location eg. Town, State, Province and Country. Also include as much info as possible about the bridge, what travelled its girth then and now.

To log a bridge, it must be entirely constructed from stone, it must be able to support two lanes of vehicular traffic or rail. Bridges over backyard fishponds or having only stone pillions or DO NOT count. Any bridge already logged in another locationless or virtual cache can not be logged again. Each person can only log this cache once, and each bridge can only be logged once. No old vacation photos or Internet downloads.
