Statement of Significance

Djerriwarrh Creek Bridge, is a sandstone bridge constructed over the Djerriwarrh Creek in 1858-59 for the Road and Bridges Department of the Board of Land and Works. The single arched structure has piers framing the opening and substantial abutments constructed in a plinth, all in rusticated masonry. There is a string course at pavement level and the piers elaborate the balustrade.
Djerriwarrh Creek Bridge, is an early surviving stone bridge distinctive for its single arched design and construction in sandstone. This structure is representative of a number of such single arched bridges constructed in Victoria and forms an important part of the approach to the important townscape of Bacchus Marsh and in the landscape of the river valley.
Djerriwarrh Creek Bridge was restored in 1963 and is in good condition.
