A Bridge Through Time: A Brief History of Bundaberg’s Iconic Bridges

by Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads

A Bridge Through Time: A Brief History of Bundaberg’s Iconic Bridges by the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads, is a group of photographic prints and historical artefacts that delve into the history of the Bundaberg Region’s heritage listed bridges.
The works in this series offer a unique insight into how time and significant events have vastly changed the physical and societal makeup of the Bundaberg Region, while these historical bridges stand still, seemingly unaffected by the changing world around them. The works in this series also provide a glance into the classical style of architecture, used by architect Alfred Barton Brady in the construction of the Burnett Traffic Bridge and Kennedy Bridge.
