Noojee Line - Bridge Number 7

Noojee Line Bridge Number 7 is the best known bridge on the line, primarily because it managed to escape some of the bushfires and has been undergoing gradual restoration. However it was not the largest bridge on the line, Bridge 2 has that distinction. It is now the tallest surviving all-timber railway bridge in Victoria, at 20.5 Metres in height.

This map shows the position of the bridges, superimposed on an old Land Survey Map. Note there is a bogus bridge shown just on the Warragul side of Bridge 4, and Bridge 7 is drawn on the map in the wrong place.

This photo taken during construction is thought to show Bridge Number 7.

Bridge 7 in an interesting view, completely intact, but before the road into the site was constructed and the bridge was promoted as a tourist attraction. The lack of a safety fence across the bridge would give authorities apoplexy today.


  1. Gday my name is Jack
    Just wondering where you got that map from and how to find it, and is there a map like that of the whole Noojee line from Noojee to Warragul.
    Thanks, regards Jack

  2. Hello Jack. I am not sure where I got that map from, but there is a seies of three maps that cover the whole line. You can buy them from the Melbourne Map Centre on-line here:

  3. The maps are:

    Warragul 8021-1-2 Zone 55
    Tarago 8021-1-1 Zone 55
    Neerim 8022-2-2 Zone 55

    I hope this is of help.

    1. Thank you so much for your help, I am currently doing a school project on the train line but this is also for me as i'm a bit of a train buff who lives in the area not far from the line.
      Thank you kind regards Jack

  4. Excellent, I also live in the area at Jindivick, and I am planning to try and fly the full length of the line with my drone. Call me by email at the address in the sidebar at the top.
