Long Gully Bridge


Flat Rock Gully Reserve is a great spot for escaping the city without being far from it. The start of the walking track that takes you all the way into the reserve starts under the Long Gully Bridge. Long Gully Bridge is a heritage sandstone suspension bridge constructed in 1892 with a standout gothic architecture, connecting Cammeray to Northbridge.

The Reserve is best approached from Brothers Avenue. You will find a big grassy field used for sports and a park area behind the field for dogs to run free and dog owners to circle around for quick catch ups. This spot seemed like the locals' favourite for dog walkers as everyone appeared to know each other.
The leisurely 15 minute walk from Brothers Avenue towards the Reserve is carefree and relaxing. The view of Long Gully Bridge as you walk towards it is stunning and impressive.

You will see a narrow shallow creek that follows the path leading deeper into the reserve. Spend a moment or two observing the creek and you might just be lucky enough to spot some native birds or wildlife.

As you follow the footpath remember to look up and admire Long Gully Bridge. We were there just before dusk and the sunlight cast upon the bridge provided for amazing photos. This footpath goes on to become the Flat Rock Gully walking track which is about a 4km distance return. More information about the walking track can be found here.
