The Viaduct is a heritage-listed railway over Stonequarry Creek in Picton. The sandstone structure was built between 1863 and 1867 by Murnin 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.
