A lovely walk down to the Georges River. You are able to see the remains of an old bridge that was used in the early 1900s. Enjoy the serene environment.
The crossing was named after George Pierre Frere, who owned a property at Eckersley, but by 1913 all residents had been moved out of the area to make way for the military reserve. In more recent years a concrete causeway has been built across the river, but this may only be accessed by emergency or military vehicles.
