Bulga

The tiny town of Bulga is located at the western edge of the Hunter Valley where the plains rise up into the mountains of Wollemi National Park. The town has a general store, an old stone church and a community hall. An original colonial farmhouse from 1869 still stands behind the main street. The nearby Hillsdale Orchard has more than 5,000 orange trees and hosts guided tours.

Bulga: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Bulga Bridge over Wollombi Brook


Bridges are not just functional, they can also be scenic and engineering attractions. Spare a few minutes to admire Bulga Bridge over Wollombi Brook. The Bulga Bridge is a representative example of Dare timber truss road bridges.

The Dare truss design is a variation of the Howe truss arrangement of the Allan truss design, substituting a pair of steel channels for the bottom steel chord and employing simplified bottom chord joints by eliminating the pin as used in the DeBurgh truss. By replacing the bottom timber chord with a steel member the structural performance of the bridge design was increased.

The Dare truss bridges have the highest survival rate of the five truss types, with 18 still in existence in 2009 (of the 44 built). In fact the first one, completed in 1905 over the MacDonald River at Bendemeer, is still in existence as a footbridge.

Australian Army Infantry Museum


The museum serves as a mirror to the Infantry Corps. It is a place where young soldiers can learn about the history behind the names they are familiar with from high school or perhaps about the military service of a family member. Gallipoli, Passchendaele, Kokoda and Long Tan are all bought to life along with less familiar campaigns like the NSW Marine Light Infantry deployment to Peking in 1900.

The display space is divided into two main areas. The lower floor features exhibitions on the history of operations, from the Sudan in 1885 through to our current deployment in Afghanistan today and the mezzanine level features the 'tools of the trade', that is, the small arms and their associated training aids, how they have changed and developed and how these changes have influenced the tactics, techniques and procedures of the Regiments of the Royal Australian Infantry Corps.
