Gudgenby: A register of archaeological sites in the proposed Gudgenby National Park, J H Winston-Gregson MA thesis, ANU, 1978. Site OR12. A footbridge originally made of re-used plywood on old battens; two tree trunks; the whole nailed and wired together then wired to neighbouring rocks. Presumably built to enable sheep to graze both banks of Orroral River.
