Three Bridges is a picturesque crossing of the Loddon River in Eddington, Victoria, named because the gravel road winds its way over the water across three bridges. 

This is a great place for swimming, fishing and birdwatching. There are also plenty of rocks, trees and fallen logs for children to climb and explore.

Rock spa at Three Bridges

An arrangement of the rocks beside the main bridge forms a stunning multi-level pool and spa, turning this crossing into a gorgeous, tranquil retreat along the Loddon.

Swimming at Three Bridges

Across the bridge from the rushing rock pool and spa, the water runs smoother and there's a rope swing attached to a tree.

It's a good idea to wear sandals in the water as the rocks on the river bed around the rock pools are fairly sharp to walk on in some places.

I cannot fin 3 bridges? Where is it?
Goldfields Guide
GPS is very useful in finding Three Bridges, as the roads are unsigned... Directions from Bendigo-Maryborough Road: Turn off Bendigo-Maryborough Road onto Forbes Road. Follow this straight through the next intersection, where it becomes Greenings Road. Continue straight until you come to a turn-off on the left, which is unsigned, but is named Back Eddington Road on the map. Take this left turn and follow it along as it makes its way down to the Loddon River (you should be able to see the line of trees along the river). Three Bridges is located where Back Eddington Road crosses over the Loddon. Hope this helps! :)

We discovered this gorgeous spot today and had a swim, it was just beautiful. Unfortunately some idiots had left a lot of rubbish and even dug a hole and filled it with beer cans. We took away some of the rubbish but the cans are still there. It infuriates me that people have such a lack of respect for the environment and for others.
A big tree has fallen across the main swimming hole making it hard to get wet here, especially if you have kids. Still a good place to visit but if you want to swim it's not the best.
