9. The Singing Bridge (Photo 8.1, 8.2)
The ferry ride across to Hawks Nest saw the length of queues in peak holiday periods reach unacceptable levels of up to six hours waiting time. The bridge which is 304 m. in length cost $1.2 million to build. Because the bridge railings resonate during strong south-westerly winds the local citizens have dubbed it the “Singing Bridge”. A climb to the centre of the span provides excellent views of Tea Gardens and the Hawks Nest - Winda Woppa area.
Return to the car parking area and walk over to the southern side of Myall Street. Please cross this road with great care as it carries the main traffic flow across the bridge.
10. Information Centre, Council Offices, Arts & Craft Centre (Photo 10)
Cross over Myall Street (with care!) to the Community building which houses the Tourist Information Office, an Arts and Craft Centre and the local Council Offices.
10: Tourist Information Centre, Gift shop and Council Offices.
From the Centre walk north-west along Myall Street, turn right into Charles Street, then left into Marine Drive and retrace your steps back to the starting point at the Hotel Motel.
