A Tour in the Southern Districts. GUNDAGAI. 1878



THE Royal Alfred Bridge connects North with South Gundagai. In 1852 the river Murrumbidgee flooded the flats, and swept away the town of Gundagai, then situated on it, causing a known loss of 93 lives. To secure the traffic of the Great Southern Road from interruption by such recurrences the present bridge and high-level approaches were erected and finished about eight years ago.

A Tour in the Southern Districts BINALONG TO GUNDAGAI in 1878

from Australian Town and Country Journal
Sat 16 Feb 1878

THE day after I arrived at Binalong, some races were held on a course about a mile and a half from the township, and although the prizes were small and everything of the most primitive description, a fair attendance of the residents of the surrounding district was present to witness the day's sport, and all seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves, everything passing off most pleasantly.
