Quart Pot Creek meanders through Stanthorpe and makes for a lovely spot to walk and picnic. Find five kilometres of walking and cycling tracks and along one end of town the tracks link Stanthorpe to the ‘Red’ Bridge. It’s not red anymore, but this historic railway bridge is a sight to see and makes for a relaxing and scenic easy walk. Jump around the rocks at the rocky creekside at the Red Bridge and stop for a stunning photo.
Park at the Stanthorpe Visitor Information Centre and ask for directions for walking from there, or park closer at the small parking lot where Rose St meets Anzac St at Heritage Park. Follow the creekside pathway from there, following in the direction away from the town centre and it leads straight to the ‘Red’ Bridge.
The bridge was built in the mid 1880’s without modern equipment, using manpower, horse drawn drays and explosives.
