Take a look at these rather scary but amazing bridges.

Check out some of the longest bridges in the world.

On our City Bridges excursion, we travelled over and under many bridges by bus and also under a variety of bridges by water taxi. The oldest major bridge in the city, Princes Bridge,  was built across the Yarra River in 1888.

  1. I found an interesting video with lots of bridge words called SCIENCE SCREEN REPORT FOR KIDS – BRIDGES

  2. Dear Louise,
    I love the photos!!! They’re great. That river cruise was amazeballs. But to be honest, I was pretty scared when we were right next to the ships in the docks! 🙂 :}
