Snowy River from McKillop's Bridge, alpine Victoria, Australia. Looking down on the Snowy River from 191 metres up standing on the roadway of McKillop's Bridge.

This is second bridge on this site. Two weeks before the official opening the Snowy River filled the valley and washed away the new bridge. Just imagine the volume of water to fill the valley and rise to wash away a 191 metre high bridge! January 2005.

It's also possible that the water washed away the foundations and caused the bridge to collapse, without needing to fill the valley. It would still have been a pretty impressive sight!
