Swing Bridges


After walking in deep forest for what seems forever you come across 2 swim bridges that spans over 2 differnt rivers that gets fed from all over Tasmania. These 2 different rivers which merge into each other are called - the Huon River and the Picton River. 

It's somewhat frightening to walk on somthing that doesn't keep still with each step you take and by memory was these 2 swim bridges my first time and over some strong rappit flowing rivers. 

We we're told a few week before we visited they had a fair few millimetres of rain over a few days which resulted in the rivers being flooded and which meant that these bridges acted as a net, was catching all kind of debris, from tree trunks, to branches and even rubbish. 

Very surprised to see they didn’t break.
