The Fairfield Pipe Bridge, crossing the Yarra, is about 5 km east of Melbourne's CBD, located just south of the Fairfield Boat House. It was built in 1878 to carry water from the Yan Yean Reservoir to Kew. The bridge was washed away in the bad floods of 1934. A new pipe bridge was built close to the site of the original bridge. The original pylons were later demolished and no signs remain of the first pipe bridge.
The narrow bridge is open to pedestrians, and although no bicycles are to be ridden on it, I have on more than one occasion nearly collided with a rampant cyclist going full boar on the bridge.
