The Viaduct

The Viaduct has five 12.2 metre arches and is 84 meters long, with the highest point being 23.8 meters above the creek bed. It is now the oldest existing stone archway in NSW which is still in use.

It was built of sandstone between 1863 and 1867 at a time when John Whitton was responsible for railway construction in New South Wales. Viewed from the surrounding parkland, the Railway Viaduct over Stonequarry Creek is a picturesque site located at the end of Webster Street, Picton, which also has some historic old houses.
