It is only a short walk though a field of pine needles to see the viaduct. We got much closer than I expected. It is worth the stop if you have never seen a viaduct before.

It was the viaduct that brought me here. then I visited the gardens and the shops, but beware that they are closed some days during the week.

The sign there was a bit bent, but you park and walk through the gardens to see the bridge. It's quite amazing old Victorian architecture. The park itself had interesting pick faced parrots.

Definitely worth a visit. Lovely gardens to enjoy nearby with lovely views of the viaduct and a pleasant walk along the small country towns Main Street adds interest to your visit. So take the time to detour off the freeway, stop and enjoy the sights!!
