Menangle

Just south of Campbelltown lies the suburb of Menangle Park, which boasts the largest harness racing track in Australia and the Horse & Jockey Inn.

Drive a short distance further and you will find a delightful place, Menangle River Reserve, which boasts the heritage listed Menangle Railway Viaduct and the adjacent Weir on the Nepean River.

The 1863 box girder Viaduct sits on sandstone piers, which tower above the late nineteenth century Weir. The bridge carries rail traffic between Sydney and Melbourne – and is the oldest railway bridge in NSW that is still in use!

A little further is the town of Menangle, with its historic railway station. Originally opened in 1863 it is also listed on the NSW Heritage Register.
