The Silver Link by Joe Smith

Burdekin Bridge Walk

Known locally as the 'Silver Link', it not only connects the towns of Ayr and Home Hill, but forms a vital transport link between North Queensland and the rest of the state. Taking a walk across the 'Silver Link' offers visitors completely unobstructed views of the mighty Burdekin River.

Visitors wanting to experience walking across the Burdekin River Bridge will need to pull off the highway on the Ayr side heading South, find a park near the stairs and walk up to the bridge access from there. You can then walk along the pedestrian walkway onto the bridge.
