Suspension bridge or swinging bridge over the Dee River in Mount Morgan, Queensland, Australia was constructed to give workers easy access to the mine and town, especially when the river was flowing.
Unfortunately the Dee River is Queensland's most polluted river, the pollution resulting from the one thing which has kept this town alive, mining.
The suspension bridge that provides access across the Dee River from Tipperary Point to Red Hill is the only remaining pedestrian bridge of the six that were built in the 1890's. The structure was badly damaged in the 1928 flood and was declared unusable until the Mount Morgan Shire Council rebuilt the bridge in 1937.
