A Timber Trestle Bridge over Springdallah Creek is a spectacular site to visit, and is on the Heritage Victoria Register. It was constructed in the 1880s to provide a permanent access over Springdallah Creek between Happy Valley and Pigoreet. It is an early example of a colonial trestle timber bridge, featuring a 'strut-and-straining-piece' design, which is an unusual variation to the conventional strutted-stringer style of construction.[3]
