Shaky Bridge - Alexandra Clock

A short walk across the historic Shaky Bridge up to the Alexandra Clock, a timepiece that has served Alexandra since 1968.

The Shaky Bridge, completed in 1879 was built to provide a link between the growing town and the hinterland to the east of the Manuherikia and Clutha Rivers.  A set of stone towers stand on either side of the bridge, with the suspension wires arching between them. The approaches to the bridge are built up in stacked stone.

Cross the Bridge and follow the track up to the Alexandra Clock where a stunning view of Alexandra awaits.
