Very few lift bridges remain in operation in Australia. Batemans Bay has probably the largest. In normal use it rises only a small distance for a tourist boat, but very occasionally it needs to rise to full height, as on this day when the local yacht club had a run up river. A note shows the operator.

Love it! I wonder if the folks in the little boat laughed like I just did, or if they felt seriously important...

Laurie, I was on the next little boat to go through and (you guessed it) there was a feeling of real power in disrupting the road traffic. :)) Fortunately it was at the quiet time of year.

This is impressive. From this angle the height seems immense!
I can imagine watching it rise and then lower, fascinating I should think.

There is at least one in the NE I think

Thank you, Joan. It was built back in the 1950s when coastal shipping still operated here and yes, it rises a surprising distance.

Thanks, Bev. I'm not familiar with the term 'transporter bridges', are they something like the pre-fabricated WW2 Bailey bridges? Yes, it was a lovely sunny and very enjoyable day. :)

Thanks for the interesting link, Bev. I'm reasonably confident that there are none of those in Australia.

Nora Caracci VERY BU…
nel porto della mia città ce n'è uno che si apre dividendosi in 2 parti che si alzano, ma il tratto di mare da superare è molto più stretto di questo...
Eccellente ripresa e taglio !

Interesting to see. When we sold our boat, Conquero, a Cavalier 32, in 2001, it ended up in Bateman's Bay and we saw it down there later on :-)

Thanks, Gillian. I wonder if it's still down here... if I remember I'll check with friends at the yacht club.
