The bridge got its name from the noise car tyres made driving across the open grating which formed its deck. This has been replaced and the bridge no longer "sings". Still a beautiful view of the river when crossing the bridge.

Walk onto the Singing Bridge from Tea Gardens side. Good parking nearby and additional parking near the Library and swimming pool. It is very special of viewing of sea life. Waterbirds, string rays on the eastern side. If you are lucky you may see dolphins. Recently a young dolphin has been with its mother under the bridge mainly at low... More

Don't know why a bridge is on Restaurants!!!!!!! It's just a means to get to Hawks Nest from Tea Gardens!! It certainly is a muck quicker way than the old ferry of years ago! And it really does SING with great gusto when there are strong winds blowing from certain directions! But have never eaten on it,!!!!

Went for a walk this morning with the wife and crossed over this bridge twice. It's steeper on foot than it looks when you are driving over it in a car. You get a good view from the apex of the bridge but that's about it. No idea why they call it the singing bridge unless it makes a lot... More

We drove across the Singing Bridge several times during a visit to Tea Gardens/Hawks Nest during the October long weekend. There is nothing special about the bridge itself; It is a modern structure spanning the Myall River on the main drag between the two towns. As well as being a road bridge, there is also a pedestrian walkway; I can... More

It's a bridge. It sings with the sounds of bogans in the 4WDs. The footpath on the edge of the bridge isn't particularly wide.

Have lived in Tea Gardens for just over 2 years and recently moved to Hawks Nest within cooee of the Singing Bridge. It has now become our regular walk over the bridge to Tea Gardens. The views from the bridge are amazing and sunsets are spectacular. However today was the first time we heard it "singing" due to the high... More

There's nothing great about this bridge apart from the views afforded people using it, and a memorable way to cross the beautiful Myall river, from Tea Gardens to Hawks Nest, NSW. It doesn't 'sing', and there's no bicycles allowed.

The Singing Bridge spans the Myall River and links the twin towns of Tea Gardens and Hawks Nest. It is the only means of commuting between the towns other than by boat or swimming.The bridge was completed in 1974 and prior to its construction a vehicular punt took vehicles and passengers across the river, the old punt ramps are still...

Before the bridge there was the ferry. The SInging bridge was constructed in the 70's. I can still remember the incessant noise from the pile drivers echoing through the small Tea Gardens community. The old ferry crossing provided employment for many locals. During school holidays the queues of cars, trucks and caravans (tourists and frustrated locals) might "bask" in the... More
