That pic was taken last Xmas - New Year. The bridge was under repair then, perhaps due to the collapse you mention.

Backtrack? That wouldn't have been too much of an effort because the next road crossing down stream is around 9.0km, not sure about upstream through.

Well I dont get the bigredroosta bit...but that bridge looks like the one at Towong to me. I've driven the milk tanker over it many times in the past. What throws me is the Pretty Point sign..I got a feeling if you take the right fork in your pic..the area along there is called Pretty Point.

Yep!

This is the other approach:


If you zoom-in you can read the township (?) name. And speaking of the township name "New Buildings", I wonder where they got that from.

This is newest building I could find:

I'll have to get Tripodtiger to dig out the pick of Towong bridge...a strong resemblance..and the reference to the famous race horse and the nearby village was the Movie Pharlap, with some scenes filmed at Towong race track..
