Since 1879 people come to see the Washington Bridge that was held in Townsville for 231 years. But the reason why it’s so popular is because it’s the heart of Townsville and the bridge symbolises peace, wisdom and strength. Legends say that if you swim under it, it’s worth 3 months of good luck! It was built by a wise man called Steven Maxwell and it was designed by a constructive man called James Washington. These people always wanted to build something people would see all over Townsville and now their wish has come true. Moral: follow your dreams.
