The Viaduct is a heritage-listed railway over Stonequarry Creek in Picton. The sandstone structure was built between 1863 and 1867 by Marnin and Brown and was designed by Engineer-in-Chief for Railways NSW John Whitton.
The picturesque Viaduct features 12.2 meter arches and is 84 meters long over the creek bed. Modifications haven’t been necessary to the craftsmanship and today it stands in original condition. It’s now considered the oldest existing stone archway in NSW that’s still in use and rumour has it the site might be haunted…but you can be the judge of that!
The Viaduct is located at the end of Webster Street in Picton, and is surrounded by historic homes and natural parkland. It’s a close walk from the Picton train station as well as surrounding shops and cafes in the heart of Argyle Street.
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
