At Blaxland, take a detour to Lennox Bridge. It may not look like much, but this bridge begun in 1832 by convicts and completed the following year, is Australia's oldest mainland bridge, and has certainly withstood the test the time. Designed and supervised by Scottish stonemason and Superintendent of Bridges David Lennox, the bridge was started in 1832 and completed the next year with the work of 20 selected convicts including "tolerable stone cutters", The bridge is located at Mitchells Pass about 1 kilometre off the Great Western Highway at Blaxland in the Blue Mountains.
