Create an itinerary including Sea Cliff Bridge
The Sea Cliff Bridge, together with the adjoining Lawrence Hargrave Drive Bridge, are two road bridges that carry the scenic Lawrence Hargrave Drive across the rockface on the Illawarra escarpment, located in the northern Illawarra region of New South Wales, Australia. The balanced cantilever and incremental launching girder bridges link the coastal villages of Coalcliff and Clifton and carry two lanes of traffic, and a pedestrian walkway.

The Sea Cliff Bridge was named by Makenzie Russell, who at the time was an eleven-year-old student, following a naming competition opened to local primary school students. The Lawrence Hargrave Drive Bridge and the Lawrence Hargrave Drive are named in honour of Lawrence Hargrave, an Australian engineer, explorer, astronomer, inventor and aeronautical pioneer.

  • Had to go through quite a few suburbs to get to the bridge while towing a large van. This was a spectacular view once we finally got there. Wish the bridge was longer though!

  • Overrated. We enjoyed the Great Ocean Road and the iconic 12 sisters better. There is a stopping area to the south of the bridge that can get full quick which means you have to drive over the bridge and come back and hopefully get a spot. It's good they have made a walkway though so that you can walk along for a better shot.
  • Amazing bridge, just a challenge to get a good photo. The scenery along this route is spectacular (especially after the rains they've had). Stop rushing and enjoy. Not a lot of parking for caravans... just beware.
