The Cooreei Bridge over the Williams River at Dungog is listed under the NSW Heritage Act.
Built in 1906, the Cooreei Bridge is an example of the Dare design. According to the pamphlet “Historic Bridges of the Hunter Valley” Harvey Dare re-worked Allan’s design (e.g. the bridge over the Paterson River at Vacy) to produce a composite truss without pins. The result stronger and maintenance was easier.
The bridge is listed under … transport activities associated with the moving of people and goods from one place to another, and systems for the provision of such movements.

WHY ISN’T THE GOOD ACCESS BADGE TURNED ON?
Some listings are here because we think they’re pretty cool and you should know about them! And some, we just haven’t quite got enough info to make the ‘Good Access’ call yet.. so to answer the question, a business could be listed on our site if:
A. The business indicates they have some accessible facilities, but we haven’t quite gotten around to chatting through the details, stay tuned! If you’ve been here, leave a review and let us know about your experience!
B. We have spoken to their team.. the facilities aren’t quite what we’d call accessible BUT we’ve provided you with ‘good to know’ tips in case you’re keen to give it a go anyway!
FACILITIES FOUND HERE
- Picnic Area
- Public Toilet
