The bluestone mill bridge over Scott's Creek at Byaduk is of architectural and historical importance to the township of Byaduk and the Southern Grampians Shire.
Why is it significant?
The bluestone mill bridge is of historical significance for its associations with major industrial and recreational sites associated with the township of Byaduk, the Holmes Flour Mill and the Byaduk Swimming Pool. The bridge spans the Scott's Creek, and defines the entrance to two separate sites which although were previously important places, have now been abandoned and fallen into disrepair. The bridge can be viewed a link to these places, and the changing needs and social structure of the township of Byduk over the past 150 years. The bridge is of architectural significance for its fine construction techniques and finishes.
